Join the Library Read-Along

Richmond’s Library Services are posting short pieces of literature every day to encourage residents, who might be missing visiting the borough’s libraries, to read along and share their thoughts.

The pieces of literature – for example a poem or short story – are available to read on The Library Blog, on Twitter and on Facebook. Richmond Libraries want to hear your thoughts on the pieces so feel free to discuss the text in the comments section on Facebook and by replying on Twitter.

Whilst libraries remain closed in accordance with government guidance, online library services are open 24/7 – and they are booming! Richmond Card holders can access free eBooks, eAudiobooks, eMagazines, an online music library, and many more online services. The number of people registering for the Libby online service has increased by 365%. Library EBook issues are also up by 70% overall.
