Adlington Library - Adlington Library - Reading Hack 18 - 24 Years

Overview

Lancashire libraries care and cater for the needs of their local communities and

are recognised as a safe space and often the main community hub. The library

service is continually involved with new projects to ensure they provide what is

needed locally for all ages. By running regular events and acting as the venue

for many other local groups' activities, they endeavour to help tackle the issues

leading to social isolation. Their many regular activities and events include:

Digital skills courses, Mental Health & Wellbeing groups, Reading groups,

Children's Activities, Craft Activities for all ages as well as providing information

and knowledge for enquiries.

The need for volunteers to help assist the service, by helping under supervision

 

to provide many of the activities and projects, is vital.
