Cost of living resources

Find out how your local library can support you

As times become tough, we look to our libraries to support communities across Hampshire. We’ve put together some helpful resources on the different ways libraries can support you during the cost of living crisis. From learning a new skill to practical resources on budgeting, there’s something for everyone.
