Warwickshire Libraries are gifting Warm Bags and Toiletry Bags, while stocks last, at our Warwickshire County Council run branches to help people impacted by cost-of-living increases.
This offer is in partnership with the Warwickshire Local Welfare Scheme, funded by the Household Support Fund.
People are encouraged to come into a Warwickshire Library branch where they will find the bags in a designated area, and they can just be collected for free. The Warm Bags and Toiletry Bags will be available from Monday 30 January.
The Warm Bag contains a blanket, hat, scarf, hot water bottle, and gloves.
The toiletry bags are sub-divided into three offers:
· One toiletry bag containing female sanitary/period products.

· Hygiene products for adults (containing toothpaste, toothbrush, deodorant, shower gel and soap).
