Libraries Week 2019

Libraries Week 2019 will be a celebration of the nation’s much-loved libraries. See the events happening as part of Libraries Week.

Libraries Week 2019 will run from 7–12 October. We will be hosting a wide range of events throughout the borough to encourage everyone to come and benefit from their local library. Our libraries are inclusive and welcoming community hubs. Regardless of your age or background, our libraries have something for you!
