Jill Barker

I have worked for Gloucestershire Libraries for most of my career and have been involved in ensuring that libraries remain visible and relevant to all our communities.  Libraries have always been about the power of reading, access to information and a place to learn and explore ideas and my role is to update this offer to reflect changes in technology, lifestyles and customer expectations. 


Our recent partnership with Create Gloucestershire and the Art of Libraries project is testing libraries as places where young people and families can encounter art and creativity and to create a culture where art is everyday for everyone.
