Retired Members Group

The Retired Members Group enables retired library and information workers, at home and abroad, to keep in touch with each other, participate in activities and assist CILIP in promoting library and information services.

If you are a retired librarian or information professional or if you are approaching retirement and would like to continue your personal and professional connection with CILIP and with other members, then join the Retired Members Group. The Group enables you to keep in touch with friends and colleagues old and new, enjoy a range of interesting events and to assist CILIP in its ongoing work and promotion of libraries.

The Retired Members Group was formed in January 2017 when the Retired Members Guild was dissolved. This relaunched offer will see the group brought closer to the CILIP family, with membership no longer including a surcharge.

From January 2017 until December 2018, members will be able to join the Retired Members Group as a complementary Special Interest Group at no extra charge.
