Statement

Woodlands Speaks Charitable Incorporated Organisation (Charity No. 1159638) has given notice to Doncaster Council that it will no longer manage Woodlands Community Library and Hub from the 31st October 2022.

Woodlands Speaks has managed and funded the running of the Library for the last 7 years, with over 400 residents, groups and agencies using the Library each week, along with children’s events and employment support.

Since reopening after Covid-19, 6 months ago, less than 30 people have been using the Library every week, and important though they are, to continue managing the Library for so few users, is not the best use of the Charity’s funds.

Woodlands Speaks is not leaving Woodlands and will continue to support the community in other ways.

From the 01st November 2022, Doncaster Council will be responsible for the Library.
