Clerk’s Report February

LAPWORTH PARISH COUNCIL REPORT

Over the past year accessibility to the Warwickshire Library service has adapted to meet residents needs.  Through its ‘eLibrary services’ where you can access

eBooks, eAudio Books, eMagazines, eNewspapers and eMusic – there is a full selection of titles and well worth a look.  In addition to this in April last year, the Council’s established ‘home library service’ started to make doorstep deliveries, enabling Warwickshire residents that were unable to access library services in any other way to have regular book deliveries to their homes and to keep reading.

Around 360 home library service customers across Warwickshire currently benefit from receiving a doorstep book delivery every 4 weeks, which equates to around 1,440 books being selected and delivered by libraries staff in the same period.  Over 3,500 doorstep book deliveries have been made since April 2020 and the current lockdown means that many residents are, once again, reliant on the service as a way of coping with the restrictions that are needed to contain the virus.

There are also resources to help with home learning.  Joining is easy and can be done on line at
