PICKERING Library is celebrating its first year as a hybrid library service.

The Pickering Library Volunteers Support Group (PLVSG) started providing the library with a regular group of volunteers who work in partnership with established council library staff on April 1, 2017.

To celebrate the anniversary a celebration will be held on Monday, April 23, from 10am to noon, with refreshments, a birthday cake and entertainment from Musical Memories.

There will also be a birthday card for people to sign.

Pickering library currently has 58 volunteers who help run the library, along with a 12 strong Home Library Service team as well as expertise in family history searching, local area archive recording and library display preparation.
