Hampshire Libraries open online services during lockdown

Published by Laura Scardarella at 12:27pm 27th April 2020.

Hampshire libraries are providing online services for people to access e-books, audio books and podcasts during the coronavirus lockdown.

Adults and children can also join in at home with online events such as health and wellbeing sessions, live craft sessions and storytime readings.

Residents in Hampshire are able to follow multiple social media platforms to keep up to date with the events that are being offered, through mobile phones, tablets and computers. 

Hampshire County Council’s Executive Member for Recreation and Heritage, Councillor Sean Woodward, tells us that he is incredibly proud of how their service has adapted to the current situation:

“Even if it is in a small way, the live social media activities can help prevent feelings of isolation among those who have been cut off from their normal routines during the coronavirus outbreak.

"I am sure that many people will want to continue using these free services into the future.” 

The libraries digital resources can be found on the Hampshire County Council website where membership is free to anyone who lives in the county.
