Library Handover

The formal ceremony to celebrate the handover of the Library from West Berkshire Council took place on Friday 15th June.   The Hungerford Library Community Trust has been set up as a charity to take on the building by leasing it from WBC.  The building will be run as a community hub, with WBC continuing to run the library service.  This is an amazing achievement and marks the start of an exciting journey for the Town and the community.  A further event will take place on Saturday 8th September at which the building will be formally re-opened as a community hub.
