Go to the library – and help the Food Bank!

LIBRARIES Week – an annual celebration of the nation’s libraries – runs from October 5-14 and in Warrington LiveWire has a whole host of events and activities taking place.
One is the “Food for Fines” scheme that aims to help raise much-needed donations to Warrington Food Bank by allowing library members to donate items of food instead of paying a fine on any overdue book.
For each item of food donated, library staff will reduce the amount of fines owed on overdue books by £1 (up to a maximum of £50). If your fine is less than £1 it will simply be cleared in exchange for an item.
The food bank is currently short of the following items: tinned spaghetti, tinned fruit, fruit juice from concentrate, cream crackers, jam and tinned meat products – so these would be particularly welcomed.
All LiveWire Libraries are taking part in “Food for Fines” and items can be donated during normal opening hours.
Other events in Libraries Week include art classes, coding clubs, a murder mystery event, a history talk and a “silver social” event at Orford Jubilee Neighbourhood Hub’s Jubilee Suite from 2pm to 4pm on Monday October 7.
This event is for the over-55s and is aimed at helping to combat social isolation by providing a safe and friendly environment for people make new friends. Admission is free but booking is essential.
Anyone attending needs to register their attendance in the library.
Wendy Molyneux, LiveWire’s strategic library manager, said: “Libraries Week is an annual celebration highlighting the valuable role libraries play in transforming lives and strengthening communities. It’s a chance for us to get away from the typical stereotyping of libraries and show that we are innovative in our approach to engaging with the public and reinventing the image of libraries.”
