Library Community Pilots
Thirteen libraries across Devon have been chosen to take part in a pioneering new partnership project to test how they can support their local libraries and expand the services they provide.
Devon County Council is working with the dedicated community groups to help shape the new organisation and try out new ways of involving local people so they can have more say on how their library is run.
Read a short summary of each project and how they are getting on.
