Warm Welcome - our cost of living campaign
We know how difficult this winter will be with the rising cost of living. Suffolk Libraries is here to help anyone who needs support, with no judgement or stigma.
Our libraries have always provided a safe, warm sanctuary for anyone to come and spend time in or find support and resources. This winter, we’ll be bringing in new initiatives to help people stay warm, stay safe and stay connected.
How Suffolk Libraries can help
Anyone is welcome to visit our libraries to find help and support. Our libraries have always been warm spaces where you can come and relax with no expectation to spend money or join in with activities.
Our staff are always available if you need to speak to someone and be signposted to other resources.
Our current services include:

Different services will be available at different libraries depending on space and staff capacity. We advise you to contact your local library to see what support will be available to you.
If you don't have a library located near you, the Rural Coffee Caravan has created a map of warm spaces available across Suffolk. Suffolk County Council also has a helpful page of resources on their website.
