New CILIP Library Fund Launched

CILIP Library Fund

On Monday 23 May, the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals (CILIP) launched the CILIP Library Fund, a new initiative to support UK libraries and information services.

The Library Fund, which will not replace or duplicate core public funding for libraries, has been kick-started with a £10,000 investment. During 2016 and 2017, CILIP will implement a UK-wide crowdfunding campaign for individuals and companies to build up the Fund with the aim of creating a new Grants Programme from 2018.

The intention is to support a range of projects and activities that improve access to information and knowledge, literacy, health, digital inclusion and life chances.
