Braunstone Town Community Library
‘Inspiring Communities to Connect’
The team at Braunstone Town Community Library are working collaboratively with their community and local partners to develop strands of creative and cultural activity that will bring people together. They’re creating volunteering opportunities with each strand of activity that they hope will help individuals to develop skills, build confidence and improve their wellbeing.
At the heart of this activity will be the library, a community hub, offering a meeting place for people of all backgrounds and of all ages to connect, create and share together.
Families enjoyed ‘Artist in Residence’ sessions, created and delivered by our partners BabyGigs with support from Library Activity Volunteers. Families had the opportunity to connect with each other and the local community on a wildlife and heritage trail. Activities also linked in with the theme of Leicestershire Libraries Summer Reading Challenge and supported library book issues and joining figures.
Intergenerational Musical Project
A music project aimed at connecting all ages through the sharing of music and memories from different eras. They’ll be bringing out the vinyl and turning up the record player. There’s even plans to produce and record some music!
Library Garden – Connecting in Nature
The creation of a community library garden where people will be able to come together to connect with nature, wildlife and the outdoors.
