Blackberry picking season
Autumn is definitely here. Schools are back, and the county is enjoying some lovely late summer weather. As ever, we're looking for some fresh photos to feature on our Facebook page so if you've taken some great pics of Oxfordshire while out and about, let us know! 

Your library, your space, whenever you need it.

We love our libraries. They're great community spaces whether it's getting lost in a book, studying or just using the space to sort a parking application out. We want to make sure our libraries are there when you need them, so we're making them available outside normal opening hours, starting with Eynsham and Summertown Libraries. Find out more. 

Oxfordshire Libraries Newsletter

While we're on the subject, the Oxfordshire Library Service have a fantastic new newsletter that's just launched, with book recommendations, free magazines and lots more. Sign up here

Whats on around the County

As usual, our Family Information Service directory is chock full of ideas for things to do and see across the county. Wherever you are, we think you'll find something exciting this October.

Hands on Oxfordshire Heritage visits

Rumour has it our Museum Service can make people young again. 

Hands on Oxfordshire Heritage – part of our Museums Service – specialise in reminiscing about Oxfordshire’s past by taking boxes of interesting objects and photographs to groups of older people at day centres and other community groups.

Is your loved one's Electric Blanket safe?

Electric blankets are lovely and cosy during the winter. But if they're faulty, they can really cause serious injuries. A third of blankets we tested last year failed the safety test, but luckily our Fire and Rescue service are traveling around the county testing blankets to make sure you're tucked up safely this winter!

Edna reading in the garden

Volunteers needed!

Could you deliver books once a month to someone like Edna? We're on the lookout for some lovely people to help choose and deliver books to people who can't get to the library themselves. Watch the video to see just how much it means to Edna, and get in touch if you think you could help.
Power Cut? Call 105

Don’t get left in the dark. Call 105

It’s the number to dial for help and advice is there is a power cut in your local area. The 105 service works on mobiles and landlines and will get you straight through to the local electricity network operator wherever you are in the UK.
