Congratulations to Measham and District Community Managed Library who won the "Community Building of the Year" category at the 2018 Heroes of Leicestershire awards. The presentation took place at a dinner held at the King Power stadium on the 19th July. The Leicester Mercury wrote:
Libraries are the vital, beating heart of our communities, so it is no surprise that Measham and District Community Library scooped the honour of being crowned the Community Building of the Year. Previously owned by Leicestershire County Council, Measham Library is now in the capable hands of a strong team of dedicated volunteers who opened up in July 2016. The library depends on the generosity of local people to give their time, ideas and resources to enable it to deliver this important service and offers clubs including knit and stitch, hatha yoga, stroke and disability club, walking group, a monthly book club and rhyme time for babies.
