Cumbria County Council is supporting National Libraries Week.

Cllr Deborah Earl, Cabinet Member for Public Health and Local Communities, said: “I am pleased the council is supporting National Libraries Week.

"Libraries are important community hubs that provide access to a wide variety of services, opportunities and information.

"Maintaining access to these services during the pandemic has been crucial in supporting the health and wellbeing of our residents.

“The safety of staff and customers remains our priority and our teams have been working extremely hard to ensure all safety measures are in place for our customers.

“Keeping ourselves occupied and healthy is vital during these challenging times, so National Libraries Week is the perfect opportunity to visit your local branch, whether it be to browse our collection of books, open your mind to new courses or even just for a nosey!”
