Bream Community Library is privileged to announce that today in Gloucester we were announced as finalists for the David Vaisey Prize.

For details about this prize please visit:

Winning the prize would of course be incredible, but to be shortlisted is such an honour in itself, so much thanks need to be said to everyone involved, all our volunteers and Gloucestershire libraries for their continuous support. A special thanks must be said to our Support Officer who takes care of all the community libraries.

Two volunteers from Bream Library attended the function held at Gloucester Cathedral today. The announcements were made in the reception room called the ‘Laud Room’. It is a room dedicated to the Dean of Gloucester (1616) William Laud DD.

After, there was refreshments and some networking to be done and of course pictures to be taken (as I would need them for this blog post 🙂 )
