ABOUT AWEN LIBRARIES


Our libraries provide welcoming community spaces for everyone. Come to us for education, entertainment, enlightenment, discovery and fun.

We provide access to a wide range of information available in a wide variety of formats, from online encyclopaedias to local directories and maps from the 19th century, from current bestsellers to those difficult-to-find first-in-a-series, from stories on cassette tape for those with old school technology to audio downloads for those with the latest. We not only provide a home for these resources, we can help you access it.

If you need help downloading to a new phone, or using a new eReader, we can provide it. With digital drop-in sessions for more in-depth questions and friendly, knowledgeable staff for ad hoc enquiries, we want to provide you with the level of information you need.

We’re not just about IT however… What we love, more than almost anything, is to spread our love of reading with children. Children’s books and activities are a HUGE part of what we do, and we do it well!

Storytelling, reading groups, crafts activities, class visits, Bounce and Rhymes for babies, incredible pop-up books, children’s eMagazines and eBooks, audio downloads, film clubs, coding clubs and smiley, encouraging librarians. Honestly, if your children aren’t regular visitors, they are missing out!

All this and brilliant books too!
