What will the future Library Service offered by Volunteer Network CIC include?

Some details on the winning bid are available on this link - Pevensey Bay Community Library: ESCC Report

Given the confusion that their low cost bid to the county council has caused, a bigger focus on the library in Volunteer Network CIC's most recent newsletter is really welcome.   In particular, the decision to invest in an online Library Management System to underpin a quality library service, despite it not being included in their approved bid, is encouraging.  See extract below.

The library is expected to re-open in September/October.
