A former assistant at Honiton Library has started a new job as supervisor at Ottery Library.

“Everyone has given me a very warm welcome.

“I love a job where I can make a difference, where I can help people and where we can focus on the library being at the heart of the community. “I am looking forward to getting to know my staff and customers and to ensuring the library remains an important part of the town.”
