Celebrating Libraries Week!

Join Telford and Wrekin Libraries between 7-12 October to celebrate Libraries Week with a wide range of free digital events!

Libraries Week is a week-long celebration of the nation’s much-loved libraries, this year highlighting the different ways they can help people of all ages through digital support, services and activities.

Throughout the week, free activities with a digital focus for adults and young people will be on offer at many Council’s libraries across the borough.

As such, regular IT help drop-ins sessions will be running all week from Monday to Friday, 11am -1pm at Madeley, Newport, Oakengates, Wellington and Southwater libraries.
If you or someone you know is getting left behind in the digital world, why not join one of these sessions – further information is available here

Other events suitable for all ages and interests will also take place– such as beginners’ help to using iPad and Android tablets, discovering 3D Printing, researching family history using the Libraries’ FREE online resource Ancestry Library, guide to accessing the Libraries FREE eMagazine and eBooks Apps and discovering apps which can support well-being and mindfulness. 

There will also be fun activities for children including digital art workshops and Lego x Stop motion activities, where children can create mini videos with their Lego creations.
