Get ready for Libraries Week

Engage people, market your event and get media coverage this Libraries Week!

Libraries Week is the annual showcase of the best that UK libraries of all kinds have to offer, with a focus in 2020 on celebrating the role of libraries in the UK’s book culture.

We want to encourage and support libraries to reach out to their community and local media to highlight their reading offer; to showcase libraries as spaces for reading, engagement, learning and creativity.
