Council launches arts events as part of programme to transform Fenland’s libraries
A SERIES of arts events have been launched as part of a council programme to transform Fenland’s libraries.
Activities ranging from comedy clubs to a TV project were announced this week by Cambridgeshire County Council Libraries on community website ShapeYourPlace.
Library Friends groups across Fenland will decide what will take place in their local library.
Cambridgeshire County Councillor David Harty, Cabinet Member for Learning, said: “Libraries are at the heart of their communities, and this opportunity shows community decision making and involvement in action.
“It will also showcase the opportunity to use libraries for an exciting range of events and activities.”
