Libraries are open most days of course but on Saturday 29th we are issuing a special invitation to everyone in the country to come in and see everything that’s on offer.
If it’s been a while since you’ve been in your local library, you might be surprised at what you can find there!
Libraries are open community spaces with lots going on for everyone of all ages and interests. Come along to your local library on the Open Day to get a taste of the clubs, classes, exhibitions, activities and more on offer at your library.

As well as that, our library staff will be on hand to show you how your library membership allows you to borrow from 12 million items; choose from more box set options than Netflix, get eBooks, audiobooks and eMagazines free and straight to your device, or try free online learning classes.

So, if it’s been a while since you’ve visited your library or even if you’re a regular user, please come and Take a Closer Look at what’s on offer on Saturday 29th February!
