VIDEO: Ivybridge Community Pilot

Devon County Council has been working with the Ivybridge community to extend access to the library and reduce shared running costs with The Watermark.

So far a reduction in the service charge payable to The Watermark has been agreed and opening hours have increased from 38 hours per week to 46 hours per week. Since May the library has had new  Wednesday  afternoon opening, with a mixture of staffed and volunteer only sessions.

The Pilot group is now keen to move to phase two which will be to refurbish the IT suite and replace the desktop computers with Chromebooks and a charging cabinet. They are also aiming to improve the opportunity to hire out the space more flexibly.
