Online Library Services
I am a Families & Wellbeing Librarian for West Sussex Libraries and I just wanted to send through some information about our service which may be of benefit to your families.
Libraries may currently be closed but our online offer is very much thriving. We have dedicated children’s activities, home learning and wellbeing resources available and our eBook and eAudio offer is proving equally popular, so much so that we have added 1,300 extra eBooks and 450 eAudio titles to our existing collection. Also, around 32,000 newspapers and magazines are being downloaded each week too. Along with our range of children’s eBooks and eAudio we have a vast eComic collection all completely free of charge, simply sign in with your library card (families can join the Library Service online if they are not currently members).
Families can keep up to date with library news through our social media pages Twitter @WSCCLibraries and Facebook WestSussexLibraries. We are also very excited as we launched a new Facebook group for families West Sussex Libraries – Family Corner last week and we would love for you to join us. The group, aimed at parents, grandparents, carers and childcare professionals, highlights some of the fantastic children’s activities and products we have as part of our current offer, including our popular staff rhyme time and Storytime videos, plus links to children’s learning and our range of wellbeing resources.
We may not be in our buildings at the moment but we are still busy planning for the Summer Reading Challenge so as soon as we have more information we shall share it with you.
