Welcome back to the Library!
You can now visit all the Libraries and One Stop Shops in Denbighshire again – by appointment only so that we can ensure the safety of customers and staff. Contact your local library by phone to arrange an appointment to come in to browse and choose books, to use the computers and printing or to get help with Council services or make payments. The library layout will look a bit different so that we can keep everyone safe, the appointment will be time-limited – but the warm welcome will be just the same as ever and we’re looking forward to seeing you.
Order and Collect
If you do not wish to visit the library, you can order books over the phone or online and have an appointment to come to collect them. The Home Library Service also offers a service direct to your home. Call the library for more information or to order.
The Library Service has continued to provide a service to the local community throughout the lockdown, even though the buildings were closed. The Digital Library has been very popular with hundreds of readers downloading e-books and e-audiobooks form Borrowbox and magazines from RBDigital – in both English and Welsh. Many have also used the new PressReader service giving access to thousands of newspapers from across the world, and used Ancestry free from home. This can all be found on the Council website www.denbighshire.gov.uk/libraries and you can join online too.
Our Bookstart team has been holding a Rhymetime on Facebook Live each week since late March and posting videos of songs rhymes and stories on YouTube regularly. Families with children aged 0-3 can collect a free Bookstart pack from their local library too.
Summer Reading Challenge
Children aged 4-12 have been doing the Summer Reading Challenge online this year at http://www.sillysquad.org.uk/, and by collecting a pack and books from their local library. The theme is Silly Squad – and the challenge runs to the end of September.
