The David Vaisey Trust is a registered charity which recognises and rewards, with a number of significant annual prizes, outstanding initiatives by public libraries in Gloucestershire – initiatives which importantly result in more people reading more books.
The Trust works with Gloucestershire Library Services, with The Times and The Sunday Times Cheltenham Literature Festival, with national as well as local charities, private trusts and a number of individuals.
Make sure your local library enters the 2019 competition – it’s worth everyone’s while!
When the annual David Vaisey Prize was established, Jane Everiss, Head of Gloucestershire Library and Registration Services said: “We are pleased to work closely with the Trust to encourage initiatives in libraries where reading has a real impact on people’s lives. We are equally pleased that we can recognise the invaluable contribution that volunteers make to our libraries.”
