LiveWire libraries have joined the ‘Warm Spaces’ initiative to offer warm and welcome spaces to the Warrington community over the colder months at a time when cost of living is on the rise.
The libraries are working together to provide a hot drink and a safe, warm space for those to spend time for a few hours over the week.
This response is part of the national Warm Welcome initiative, which aims to provide a warm welcome to everyone so that no-one is left alone to face the challenges of the coming winter as fuel bills soar.
The schedule includes the following days and times for people to pop in:
Westbrook Library – 11am – 1pm.
Lymm Library – 2pm – 4pm.
Penketh Library – 11am – 1pm.
Birchwood Library – 4pm – 6pm.
Burtonwood Library – 3pm – 5pm.
Orford Library – 11am – 1pm.
Stockton Heath Library – 10am – 12pm.
Woolston Library – 11am – 1pm.
Padgate Library 10:30am-12:30pm
Culcheth Library 10:30am-12:30pm
Warrington Library – 1pm-3pm
Rachel Ralston, Strategic Library Manager, said: “Warm Spaces is designed to signpost anyone in need of warmth, to a warm space to share with others. We wanted to get involved with the initiative to help support the community with free, warm, safe places for people to come to when they need it the most. Every Warm Space in our libraries is a non-judgemental space; whatever the reason you have for needing to come in, you’ll be treated the same and never judged.”
