Show your local library some love this Valentine’s Day by taking some time for yourself to experience some of the many services your library has to offer.
Library members can enjoy all the books, e-books, audiobooks, or online magazines and newspapers that the borough’s library service has to offer, and you do not even have to be an Ealing resident.
If you work in the borough or are simply visiting, you can still become a member of the borough’s libraries for free, all you need to do is join. You can complete a short online registration form or visit a library in person.
Councillor Peter Mason, Ealing Council Leader, said: “Our libraries offer a warm and welcoming environment for residents, and they are a great space for children and families to spend time together exploring stories and learning new things. As well as a great selection of books to browse and borrow, there are plenty of groups to join and activities to take part in. You can even get friendly help and advice on things like council tax too.”
Last year, Ealing Council introduced community hubs in four of the borough’s libraries. They offer advice on financial support, benefits and council tax, as well as information about local community organisations that may be able to offer you other kinds of help.
The borough’s libraries host a number of free regular activities that can be enjoyed, including arts and crafts, scavenger hunts and more. Please check with your local library as some activities need to be booked in advance.
Ealing’s library service also hosts regular events and workshops and there are lots of videos to browse on its YouTube channel. These include local history videos.
Subscribe to the channel or you can take a look at the Facebook and Twitter accounts for all the latest updates.
You can also find a monthly events and activities calendar online.
