A competitive selection process in 2005 resulted in 19 applications, two from consortia of local authorities. From these applications we selected five public library partners to participate in the national Welcome To Your Library project. For more information about the selection process please contact the Project Co-ordinator.

The Project Co-ordinator is also working closely with The Network and many stakeholders in different sectors.

The national project partners are:
