June has several events that may be of interest to carers:
National Volunteers Week
Make a Noise in Libraries
Hertfordshire Libraries have a wide range of online resources that members can access for free either at home or in the library. Particularly relevant are:
- Information4living this website has links to national and local sources of information to support critical aspects of your life – such as your health and wellbeing, money, benefits or work.
- Library Press Display provides free access to over 4000 newspapers from 100 countries in 60 languages so you can keep in touch with current affairs around the UK and the rest of the world
- Zinio – carers can read over 150 popular magazines online free after creating an account using their library card number.
- E-books are also available to download for free as well
To access these and other online services go to www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/orlib or ask staff at any Hertfordshire library.
Don’t forget that carers can be given a special membership category to help them manage when it isn’t convenient to get to the library, again ask at any Hertfordshire library.
