The Resource Library has lots of leaflets and information about local groups and organisations, along with a range of books, CD ROMS, reports and videos that can be borrowed - see the list below.

The resources in the library are available on loan, for up to a month, FREE of CHARGE, to local voluntary and community groups who are also members of High Peak CVS (membership is currently FREE - see the Membership page).
