We’ve got lots of ideas for how you can get involved, from organising your own library event to simply visiting your local library on the day and finding out more about what they offer.

We’ll be adding more information to these pages as we get closer to 7 February.

Library users 

Soak up the atmosphere at your local public library during this special week, join one of the special events taking place and very importantly, share your support on social media!

Find out how you can help us create a buzz about libraries.

How can you entice more people through the doors?

By showing off what you do.

Events map

Use the library events map to find out what libraries in your area are doing to celebrate National Libraries Day.

Alternatively, why not organise your own National Libraries Day event and add it to the map?

Whether it’s a read-a-thon, author event, poetry master class, amateur dramatic performance, recital, book-swap, treasure hunt or open day, tell us what you and your library are doing to celebrate National Libraries Day.

Don’t forget to say where you are, what time your event is happening and to invite everyone along.
