Warm Banks | Warm Banks | Oldham Council

With rising costs of energy and continued pressures on household bills, we know it is getting harder to keep warm at home, but we can help.

We have a number of Warm Banks available across our local libraries and community centres that you can visit to keep warm at no cost.

Take this time to browse the internet, reconnect with a book or just have a hot drink. Library staff are on hand to offer support, advice and a friendly face to chat with.

So, if you are feeling cold today, visit your nearest Warm Bank.
