This National Libraries Day, show why your users value, love and regularly come to the library.
Post pictures of your library services & events
Between now and 6 February please post any pictures, video and other materials showing library based services, events, courses, workshops, collections, launches, blogs and users (where you have permission) to Twitter or Instagram and tag these with the hashtag #librariesday.
Ask users to share a message using the #Librariesday board!
Get your library users ready for National Libraries Day. Ask them to print off the downloadable #LibrariesDay board and share their personal messages in a picture along with the hashtag between now and 6 February.
Add your Libraries Day events to the 2016 map
The National Libraries Day map is now open to add your 2016 events. The site no longer uses a separate Google Map so events can be added directly on the website. You have to register with the site first to prevent spam, and you can use your old login if you previously held a registration to the old discussion forums.
Coming in January: a professional PR toolkit for libraries

Templates for press releases and letters to help you gain interest from local press and political leaders; pointers on writing your release; how to get good supporting photos, local media tips and ideas for using social channels to get your message out.
