Broomhill Community Library, Sheffield
We aim to provide up-to-date computers because free access to secure computers and wi-fi is a vital community asset. We will also offer access to printing facilities and ICT support.

About this cause
We are a volunteer-run library working in partnership with Sheffield City Council, which provides the books and the building. We offer various activities for people of all ages and access to ICT/wi-fi facilities, as well as support for the local community of 55,000 people. We plan to develop the site and restore our heritage garden for the benefit of the local community.
How this cause brings people in the community together
Offering excellent new ICT facilities for all library members free of charge will enable people to upskill for new employment, education or enjoyment, and to manage their lives in a modern society. By providing free wi-fi we can help more people. This is part of our community offer, along with weekly activities for children and adults. We also host special events at our annual local festival.
