By Vivek Julka

Braunstone Town Library has suffered a major drop in numbers since re-opening after lockdown.

In a bid to get numbers back up, the library has been running events such as coffee mornings and story time.

Lesley Lycett, a worker in the library said: “Over lockdown we ran a click and collect service but coming out after lockdown, numbers have decreased.

“To combat this, we have events such as drop-in sessions, coffee mornings and story time throughout the week to get numbers back up.

“We hope more and more people start participating in these fun events.

“Numbers are increasing gradually and hope to be back in full swing in a few months’ time.”

Braunstone Town Library also do DVDs and photocopies in aim to get more people in.
