Residents across Leicestershire are being urged to visit their local library next week as part of a week-long celebration.
Libraries Week, which will run from Monday, 7 October, showcases the resources libraries offer to connect communities, combat loneliness and support people with their digital skills.
Libraries Week is a fantastic opportunity to highlight the huge variety of free newspapers and magazines in our digital library, the extended opening hours available through Smart library technology and the types of digital support offered that may surprise people.
“I would encourage people to visit their local library to find out more.”Person:Councillor Richard Blunt, cabinet member for communities and wellbeing
The range of digital services available across the county's libraries include a free digital library of over ten thousand books, magazines and newspapers offering something for everyone.
Visitors to their local library also have the chance to find out about the regular digital coffee mornings, offering assistance with devices, getting set up to access the digital library or simply updating skills.
