Suffolk Libraries AGM. The Suffolk Libraries AGM will be taking place on 23rd September and details of the meeting has been circulated to community group trustees. If any trustees haven’t received this information, please email daniel.harvey@suffolklibraries.co.uk. Two board members are required to stand down this year in line with board rules, but are permitted to stand again. They have both decided to do so, and there were no other nominations for the board, so there will not be an election this year.

Notes from July community group meetings. We held a couple of online community group meetings in July. You can find notes from those meetings Notes for community meeting here.

Please submit details of your trustees. We need to make sure that we have up to date details of all  library community group trustees to enable us to communicate with our membership effective, and to engage with them as volunteers of Suffolk Libraries. We also need to ensure that trustees are familiar with the Suffolk Libraries ‘membership criteria’ and ‘co-operative principles’ that every group signed up to when they were first formed. Therefore, please submit details of all your current trustees using this online form https://forms.office.com/r/AEKxJNCKeF. Thank you to those groups who’ve already submitted their details.

If you have already completed the form and need to tell us about any changes to your trustee details, please do so using this online form https://forms.office.com/r/eH5Dr6eypJ

Zoom account available for member groups to use. We have set up two Zoom accounts for library community groups to ‘book’ so that they can hold online meetings. You can set up your own Zoom account for free, but you will be limited to meetings of 40 minutes duration. We have paid for upgraded accounts that don’t have this limit. If you want to book one, please email daniel.harvey@suffolklibraries.co.uk with your meeting date. As long as one of the accounts is available, Daniel will email you back the login details so you can set up  your meeting.
