Adlington Library

FoAL Great News!!! Update, 3 May 2017

On Fri 28th April 2017, LCC agreed in principle to approve the community asset transfer of Adlington Library to our organisation.  Foal will also receive the county council's package of support to help establish an independent community-run library.

Chorley Council is working with the Friends and the local community to develop their plans into a sustainable solution so that asset transfer can take place after March 2018.

The FOaL Trustees and Steering group are delighted, but there is still a lot to do to obtain the funds required to run the library and continue it in the future. The FOaL Steering Group wants to join together with our volunteers to create a team to work within the library.  I hope you will all support FoAL on this journey.  Please add these dates to your diaries:

Saturday 6th May is our usual Coffee Morning.  If the weather stays sunny we will have tables and chairs outside in the library garden.

Tickets for the BBQ will be on sale. I have attached a poster so that you have the details.

Saturday 13th May... we will have Quiz sheets at the library coffee morning. You can do the quiz on your own or work with a friend.
