The Oxfordshire Library Service provides direct access to reading, information, ICT and digital resources, as well as delivering impactful work in the areas of literacy, social and digital inclusion, health and wellbeing, and lifelong learning.
The current cost of living crisis, the ageing population, post-pandemic child development issues, and the digital inclusion agenda all point to libraries being busier than ever in the coming years.
The Oxfordshire Library Service wants to work with organisations in the areas of health and/or wellbeing by inviting them to hold a drop-in or event at one of the 44 libraries in Oxfordshire. Previously, the library service have had organisations such as Oxfordshire Mind and Active Oxfordshire come in to talk about mental health and wellbeing and physical activity. The service is keen to expand this offer by welcoming other organisations including voluntary and community sector organisations to come into the library and host a display, stand, drop-in or live event. This could be on a one-off or recurring basis.
If your organisation would be interested, or if you can think of another organisation which might like to take up this opportunity, please contact: Simon.Lay@Oxfordshire.gov.uk(External link) – Operations Manager, Library Branch Network
