Find a warm space
Warm Welcome is one of the ways we are helping people with the increased costs of living. We have libraries and community centres where you can keep warm this winter.
As well as a warm and friendly welcome, our libraries also offer a comfortable space to relax and enjoy a hot drink. There are games and puzzles available on library activity tables, and of course free wifi and public computers (book a beginner session with friendly staff if you need help getting started).
Most of the libraries also run weekly Toddler Time sessions for under 5s, and Homework Clubs for school-age children.
Bringing people together
Taking part in activities with other people can help you achieve better mental and physical health. Our Let’s Get Together programme offers a number of free activities that you can get involved in. The activities take place in community centres, libraries and museums.
The choice of activities include arts and crafts, walking sessions, community gardening, and opportunities to volunteer. There are also spaces to play chess, do jigsaws or sit quietly - something to suit everyone. Click the link below for more information
