We have been running a programme of events and clubs since we opened in 2020, having taken over the library from the Council. Now we want build on those successes and take to the next level the activities and services we offer to the community. For that reason, we are looking for new members to join the Ealing Law Centre Library Committee. The Committee reports to the Ealing Law Centre Board which runs the library building and is responsible for the management of library personnel. The Committee is responsible for:

representing the views of volunteers, users, and the wider community identifying opportunities and challenges; and helping to develop, deliver and monitor a Library Action Plan

We are looking for people who are:

interested in the future development of the library and what it can offer as a community hub able to take part in early evening meetings around six times per year. willing to have occasional responsibility for overseeing activities in the building including opening up/closing. This will enable us to offer as many activities as possible on Saturdays and in the evenings.

We would expect Ealing Law Centre Library Committee members to work in line with the principles of Seven Principles of public life, those being selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty, and leadership.
