We have rooms available to hire, from 1-2-1 meeting rooms to a larger space for groups and a big, fully fitted commercial kitchen.
The prime purpose of our library is to provide access to knowledge and information. To fulfil this mission, our library preserves a valuable record of local culture. We want to pass this down to the coming generations. Therefore, our library provides an essential link between the past, present and future.
You can borrow books, DVDs, talking books, special format books in the health zone, and e books.
You can use computers, Wi-Fi, reference books, a printer/copier, access the Council’s customer service point, find out about your local area, take part in rhyme time and story time, check out new and planned events, see displays and join in with our fantastic events and challenges.
We are proud to be one of only two Shropshire Libraries open on a Saturday afternoon.
The Ellesmere Friendship Group
Older people are especially vulnerable to loneliness and social isolation – and it can have a serious effect on their quality of life.

We recognise the dangers associated with older members of our community living in isolation. Therefore, we provide a safe space where older people can create meaningful friendships, whilst receiving high standards of care.
We run daily activities planned around the individual’s needs to ensure the best possible level of care and support.
People are supported by a staff team who receive training in areas that are specific to the health needs of people they support including dementia care. The team and service are able to provide support with personal care including bathing in the accessible facilities. The staff team are trained to support people with administering medication during the times they are with us.
The Ellesmere Opportunities Group
Our Ellesmere Opportunities group is an exciting service for adults with learning disabilities (LD). We value people’s individuality and actively encourage independence.

We plan our days around the people we support with a focus on personal development, decision-making abilities, opportunities to develop social, emotional, communication and independent living skills as a means to ensure a better quality of life.
We run daily activities, skill development and community engagement, which is planned around the individual’s needs to ensure people have opportunities to reach their full potential.
Some of the daily living skills include using public transport, cookery and healthy eating, gardening, emotional wellbeing through exercise, communication and art and crafts or music.

“Support plans were person-centred, up to date and reviewed regularly. People were involved in their reviews. One person said, “We’ve got my review coming up soon, we’ll talk about everything.” Plans guided staff to focus on the person’s well-being and what outcomes and goals they wanted to achieve.”
