Meet the Team

Deepings Community Library is the heart of the community and represents the best that can be offered by a community run library. Our army of enthusiastic volunteers headed up by Louisa and Jo make sure that the Library has something to offer everyone – come down and see for yourself!

Louisa Crowson (Part Time)

I’ve been a Deepinite (one who lives in Deeping) for over ten years! I have three beautiful girls who love to come to the library and enjoy what we have got to offer. I have been working for the library since its reopening in 2016.

What I love about the library: I love the library, it’s not just the library, its part of the community.  We constantly have a stream of happy and friendly people coming through the door which is why we enjoy working here.

My Favourite book: Little Women. I love this book as it was a book that was read to me by my mother and now I read it to my kids, it’s kind of become a tradition! My favourite quote would be “Christmas won’t be Christmas without any presents.”

Jo Crawford (Part Time)

I have been passionate about libraries and literature my whole life. I’m committed to making Deeping Library a place for all to enjoy. I have a great appreciation for what the library does for the local community, and I hope that my enthusiasm for this will also come across in person!

What I love about Deeping library: Everything. The people you get to engage with daily are refreshing and great to speak to! I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world.

My Favourite book: A town like Allice. I love the romance surrounded by the story, the triumph and tribulations Alice faces to get her little community thriving in post war Australia.

We are a lively and creative team here – come and see what’s on offer!

Reading Lincs
