SCA Group have ensured that the community served by the Cobbett Library will continue to be able to easily access library services in the future.
At Social Care in Action (SCA) Group we are delighted to announce we will be running the Cobbett Road Library in conjunction with Unexpected Places (UP) and the Friends of Cobbett Road Library (FOCRL).
Ruth Marriot, SCA Group CEO, said ‘We are extremely pleased to be working with UP and FOCRL to take the library forward. We are pleased that we have been able to help them realise their dreams for use of the space.
‘We have the same aspirations: to make it a space that people in the community can come together to enjoy reading, literature, and community activities – a space where people can learn informally, socialise and feel they belong.’
The library will open for similar hours as before and the books will remain part of the whole city wide collection. People will still be able to reserve and renew books in all the libraries and access similar services in the other libraries. Free internet access will remain available.
Cobbett Road Library can be found on Cobbett Road, Southampton, SO18 1HL.
