Our Village Library Needs Help

Many villagers have great concern that Milford on Sea is in danger of losing its library on Park Road. 

The library has been part of village life for many years and is particularly appreciated by elderly residents unable to travel to Lymington or New Milton libraries.

Present Hampshire County Council proposals are to either supply a mobile library for one half day per week, providing parking can be found, or to oversee a service run by volunteers.

If the second proposal is agreed, would you be prepared to volunteer help run a library session for a few hours per week - or a fortnight? If you wish to volunteer please telephone Elizabeth Everard, Secretary and Trustee, Milford Village Association on 01590 645429 and leave a message if she is not available.

More details will be given regarding the future of the library on Wednesday 27th. August at 7.30pm at a public meeting in the village hall when Mr Alec Kennedy, Hampshire County Councils Head of Operations - Libraries and Information will be attending, together with Ms Jane Selby, Manager Hampshire Libraries and Ms Sharon Rhymes who leads the current community libraries.
