Age Well with Welsh Libraries


Funded by the Welsh Government, ‘Age Well with Welsh Libraries’ is showcasing how Welsh Libraries are working to support an Age Friendly Wales.

Here at Awen we want to encourage as many people as possible to engage with our libraries, and to see exactly what we offer in the way of learning opportunities, digital support and a wide selection of activities that will unlock people’s potential at any age.

We recognise how important it is to rebuild older people’s confidence following Covid, and to support you to reconnect with your families, friends and communities.

Our libraries are perfectly placed to provide a community space that allows people to come together and support each other to do exactly this.

Here at Awen we have various activities and groups that support an Age Friendly Wales. Some of these events and groups are: Bore Coffi, Reading Groups at all our libraries, Digital Drop-Ins at every library and Craft Groups at Pyle and Pencoed Library.

Follow our social media accounts to keep up-to-date with what we have going on. You can also visit our What’s On page of our website – Upcoming Events – Awen Libraries ( to find a full list of our events.
