In contribution to the redevelopment of Liskeard Library AHF have awarded RIO a £30,000 Project Development Grant!

The funding is also supported by the Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, to support the development costs of the project.

Our vision is for a next generation library within the renovated building, one fully fit for the 21st century and flexible spaces to support a wide range of community activities, providing a space for people of all ages to read, play, learn and meet.

Lindsey Hall, Chief Executive of RIO said: ‘The Library building and service is at the very heart of Liskeard. Our vision is to create a 1st class library – a warm and welcoming place for people of all ages to read, play, learn and meet – all whilst retaining the building for the community.

We’re delighted that AHF and DCMS have supported our vision and the refurbishment of the building with a ‘Community Enterprise through Heritage’ programme grant, this is a huge and welcome boost for a major project for Liskeard.’
