Making the Most of Your Library

more than a library

This Arts Council England funded package ‘Making the Most of Your Library’ has been developed by Leicestershire Library Service in partnership with Society of Chief Librarians (SCL) for volunteers working in community managed or community led libraries for use nationally and it was co-created with volunteers.

The pilot found that it was more successful where the package was introduced to volunteers by library staff. The pilot evaluation report can be read in full here.

If you are a volunteer considering using this package please get in touch with your local library service contact first, if you don’t know who that is please email SCL at  and they will try to put you in touch with the correct person.

If you find this package useful please let us know via Twitter @UKSCL or by email

Please note:

  • The package is free to use for non-commercial and non-profit purposes.
  • Minor changes may be made to reflect local practice but to maintain the integrity of the document major changes are not permitted.
