A community library run entirely by volunteers is entering its next chapter thanks to a grant from The National Lottery Community Fund.

Yellow Door Library, based in Clifton Street Community Centre, Poolstock, has welcomed visitors for four days each week since it opened in December 2022. The team responsible for running the library hope the store will encourage more parents and carers with young children to benefit from the space.

Wigan Council’s Deal for Communities team hosts Funding Friday sessions at locations around the borough each week to offer expert advice and support for community organisations. Details can be found on the ‘What’s On’ section of our website
