The Tricky Period service

All Norfolk Libraries and mobile libraries provide free sanitary products for people in need - no questions asked.

How it works

We collect donations of sanitary products from people who can buy a few packs to give to people who are struggling to afford them.

Where a library has a public toilet we'll place a supply of individual items for customers to help themselves. Some libraries also put out boxes of supplies in other places so that people can take what they need - such as the teenage area at The Millennium Library.

There are 'help yourself' boxes of supplies on our mobile libraries too.

If anyone needs a larger amount of supplies, they can get a bag of items from library staff by filling in a quick form.

This is a no questions asked service.

Schools and other organisations

When we get lots of donations coming into our libraries we're happy to pass some of these extra supplies on to local high schools and other organisations.

Email libraries@norfolk.gov.uk to check whether we have spare supplies available.
