Wifi in Libraries
Despite the savings we have to make, we have no plans to close any of our 43 libraries. In fact we think they’ll be needed more than ever as public spaces, so it’s great that we’ve been awarded a grant to add wifi to any libraries that don’t have it already. 
Fireworks safety

We know you don’t like it when we remind you to stay safe, but every year our firefighters see too many horrible injuries to families and friends. Please do follow our safety checklist, and have fun!
