Discover what your library has to offer during Libraries Week

Cheshire West Libraries to become ‘fun palaces’

Cheshire West and Chester Libraries is inviting members of the public to discover what their local library has to offer during Libraries Week - from 9th to 14th October 2017.

Libraries Week is the annual showcase of the best that UK libraries have to offer, encouraging everyone to discover their local library.

As a preview to the week, libraries in Neston, Blacon, Ellesmere Port, Northwich, as well as Storyhouse in Chester, will be opening their doors as ‘Fun Palaces’.

The event takes place on Saturday 7th October and is part of a free, international celebration of community - bringing people together through arts, science, crafts and technology.

During Libraries Week, visitors will be able to discover the wide range of things they can do at their libraries - from play and learning for children, to managing their health, accessing wi-fi and council services, finding a job, a hobby or starting a business.

Cllr Louise Gittins, Cheshire West cabinet member for communities and wellbeing said: “We want to highlight the great programme of activities our libraries offer during Libraries Week to help people to discover what is available in their local community.

“Our libraries have great facilities and activities on offer all year round, from free access to the internet and wi-fi, to social groups, coding and other digital sessions and work clubs.

“So this is a great chance to experience what libraries can do for you. Everyone is welcome, it’s completely free and we’ll be delighted to welcome new faces during Libraries Week.”

Cheshire West and Chester Libraries also offers free digital services such as eBooks and eMagazines which can be accessed at home, so you can discover what the library has to offer any time of day or night.

You can join the library online or at any library building in Cheshire West and Chester.
