Community Connection

Lord Mayor, Councillor Len Gregory and the Lady Mayoress at Yardley Wood’s official re-opening 3 July 2010

Birmingham Library and Archive Services have been awarded £1.4 million from the Big Lottery Fund’s Community Libraries programme for a project called Community Connection.

This will be happening in five libraries: Erdington,Frankley, South Yardley, Ward End and Yardley Wood.

Local people helped to design each library’s up- to- date community space with catering facilities, new furniture and ICT. Now they have a room which is flexible and multi-purpose. The spaces are fully accessible and have hearing induction loops.

The spaces were launched from September 2009 to July 2010 with fun days and taster activities.
