The 9-14 October is Libraries Week, when book lovers all over the country celebrate all the wonderful things libraries have to offer!

There’s so much to discover at your local library, from stacks of brilliant books to reading groups, and activity clubs to author visits…

You can always rely on librarians and volunteers to recommend a great new read, or help you get started on an awesome activity (like the Summer Reading Challenge!)

Make sure you pay your library a visit this week and get involved in all the fun!

What do you love about your library?
