Will libraries be run by volunteers?

No. Devon Libraries has always benefitted from and valued the support of our committed volunteers.  Libraries Unlimited will continue to encourage and support volunteering in libraries but it will not be reliant on volunteers to run libraries.  Libraries will continue to be run by paid staff.  Libraries Unlimited will look to build on our recent work with local communities through our Community Pilot Programme which has seen some of our smaller libraries opening for longer hours as a result of members of the local community volunteering to extend access to the service.
