Friends of the Library

The Friends of Ventnor Library group provide invaluable help to the library and its staff.

The number of activities now available in the library has grown significantly with the help of our supporters group. They raise funds for the library, provide help to organise and run events and provide essential support and advice to the library service. The group is a valuable link between the council and Ventnor residents, enabling us to test out ideas and check that our plans for the library are what residents want.
