25 years and still going!

LILAC has been around for 25 years, and we want to make sure it can keep going. But to do so we need to know what you, and all our members, want.

Does LILAC have a place in this rapidly changing world? How do we reach our diverse membership base? What sort of events appeal to different age groups? How can LILAC add value for you? Do you want face to face interaction or online? If you’re someone who likes to come in to browse LILAC’s collections, what days and hours suit you? Are you interested in volunteering to help keep LILAC running?
