Great Glen Library
For the second year running, the Rotary Club of Oadby Launde, based at Glen Gorse Golf Club, have made a significant donation to improve facilities at Great Glen Library.
Pictured, trying out the furniture, is chair of the trustees Gillian Townsend (L), Rotarian Barry Coleman representing the Rotary Club and Rotary District, and Wendy Dziewanowska, this year’s Rotary Club President, who made the presentation.
As a result of an approach last year, the club bought new items to furnish the outdoor leisure area and garden at the library.
This year the club have bought new furniture to be used inside the library, where library users can relax, and enjoy a tea or coffee.
Following local government cuts, the library is run completely by volunteers. Gillian Townsend, chair of the library trustees, said “this donation of £700 is extremely generous. We are very grateful to the rotary club.”
