Stock up on free winter reading

Nantwich Library

Throughout the winter, Cheshire East Council and its partner agencies in the Adult Safeguarding Board have been providing information and key contact numbers as part of its Stay Warm, Stay Well, Stay Safe campaign.

This is intended to assist, reassure and empower its most vulnerable people by providing information on the Cheshire East website and through the local media.

With the colder weather very much upon us, Cheshire East Council would like to remind people that its libraries are on hand for those who want to stock up on their free winter reading.

Residents are being encouraged to take advantage of the chance to borrow free books from the area’s libraries, many of which have been newly refurbished.

Libraries provide more online services than ever before. You can reserve and renew library books without leaving your front door as well as accessing the ‘virtual’ reference library or listening to classical music through the libraries subscription to Naxos.

Monthly reading groups are held in libraries across Cheshire East – those interested are advised to contact their nearest library for more information. And the authority has mobile libraries which take books for all ages into the rural areas of Cheshire East.

Book loans can be renewed from home by calling 0845 148 0148 or visiting the Cheshire East website — there's a link below the photo - and typing in ‘libraries’ into the search engine.

Meanwhile, Cheshire East libraries are always looking for volunteers to help people get online or help at library events. The Council is appealing to those with time to spare to contact their local library for more details or call 0300 123 5018.
