“Every time I go into the library I see the amazing work our librarian does for the elderly and infirm. She goes over and above her job description and is an obvious supportive, caring figure for these vulnerable people — from assisting with appropriate reading material, large print books and audio books for those who are visually impaired, to offering a warm, friendly and caring face (and sometimes the odd cup of coffee!) to those who might otherwise have few meaningful connections with the wider community.
“I’m fearful a number of these older people will no longer have a reason to connect and interact with village life, and become withdrawn and lacking in confidence. These peripheral services are hugely significant and will have a very negative consequential effect if underrated and eradicated.”
– Ruth Olley, Chagford
