Support for Carers
Last week was National Carers’ week and the theme this year was Making Carers Visible. While we can’t hold events for informal carers now, we have sent the carers we know of a postcard to say thank you, we recognise you and appreciate everything that you do. The postcard also gives details of support contact information. Information and support can be found here:

CloudLibrary: Shropshire’s CloudLibrary is available for borrowers to download e-books and e-audio books. CloudLibrary works in the same way as a physical library so once one person ‘takes out’ a book it is not available for anyone else to borrow. We share our e-library with other library authorities providing lots of choice, if a title belonging to Shropshire libraries is on loan you will be able to place a hold on it (request it). To access CloudLibrary, all you need is your library card number and PIN.
e-Magazines on RBdigital: Read full digital copies of your favourite magazines, for free, with our RBdigital e-Magazine Service.
e-Newspapers and e-Magazines on PressReader: Access over 2000 e-newspapers and e-magazines, including most of the UK national papers, through Library PressReader.Shropshire Libraries Reading Group Facebook Page: We would also encourage those users that are on Facebook to join the Shropshire Libraries Reading Group page. Members of this group frequently discuss titles that they have been reading and offer recommendations to others.
