What is Library Makers?
Library Makers are a unique team of individuals, groups and organisations working together with the library to help shape and transform our libraries into vibrant and cultural hubs within the community.
Library Makers is an opportunity for anyone with a passion or interest in libraries and volunteering to support us and get involved. Whether you are a supporter of Luton Central Library or want to actively get involved with your local branch library then there are opportunities for you.
Library Makers are people from all walks of life, with a unique set of interests, skills, passions and talents. They are groups, organisations and individuals who share their skills and passions through showing support, donating and volunteering and can be students, retirees, parents and children, young professionals and young people. Where some Library Makers may have a lot of time to commit to their project, others may have an hour a week or a week a year. Whoever you are, whatever you can do or give, there is a place for you within Library Makers.
