SCL participated in the Carnegie Library Lab Innovation Masterclass on Monday 1 September 2014, which included 70 delegates from libraries and SCL President Ciara Eastell, who also serves on the Advisory Group for the Carnegie Library Lab.

Public Libraries across the UK and Ireland are being given the opportunity to help future-proof their services thanks to a £200,000 funding boost from the Carnegie UK Trust.

The three year funding programme, ‘Carnegie Library Lab’ will create partnerships with up to 15 public libraries to support innovative practice and show that book lending is only one of many services that libraries can deliver.
