Libraries Week 2020

Join us to celebrate Libraries Week 2020

Organised by CILIP, Libraries Week is the annual showcase and celebration of the best that libraries have to offer. Taking place between the 5th and 10th October, this Libraries Week will celebrate the nation’s much-loved libraries and their role in the UK’s book culture. Get planning your libraries week activities and share your library stories to help showcase the value of libraries in providing universal access to books and reading. During lockdown, we saw libraries support the nation to get reading, providing comfort, companionship and escapism in challenging times. With local authorities reporting increases - of up to 600-700% - in people registering with their local library during lockdown it is evident that libraries play a vital role in connecting people to a world of reading. Find out more at and join in the conversation at #LibrariesWeek. Encourage your community to sign up for a library card today and discover a world of reading!
