Libraries in Cheshire East
Cheshire East has 16 libraries in towns and villages across the borough, with a mobile library service serving the more remote rural areas. Libraries provide much more than just books. As part of a wide range of stock, libraries have large print and talking books, e-audiobooks and e-books. They have self-help books on mental health conditions and dementia, as well as mood-boosting books and Macmillan cancer support books. You can use the computers to access the internet for free or you can come to a coffee morning or join a book group. There are lots of opportunities for lifelong learning, online family history, and volunteering opportunities.
Library IT buddies are available to give one-to-one friendly support to help you learn basic digital skills on a computer or a tablet device, at your own pace. This costs just £2 for an hour’s support, and needs to be booked in advance by visiting or phoning your local library.
Mobile Library Service
The Mobile Library Service takes books for all ages into the rural areas of Cheshire East on a three-weekly basis. In partnership with the Royal Voluntary Service (RVS), libraries also provide a personal service direct to the homes of readers who are unable to collect their own books from a library, and whose friends and relations are unable to do this for them. RVS volunteers can visit you on a regular basis, usually fortnightly, delivering the requested books and talking books.
