National Libraries Day on Saturday 7th February – and for the rest of February and March!

nld-logoOn Saturday 7th February it was National Libraries Day!  BUT we love libraries all year round (big surprise), so we’re being greedy and extending National Libraries Day to the whole of February and March – because we can!

Help us mark this occasion by writing a review in no more than 50 words of your favourite book. We shall display your review and book (if we do not have it in stock we will try to obtain a copy) in the Lending Library (ground floor). 
Please:
*Write no more than 50 words (you may, of course, use fewer than 50 words)
*Clearly write the title of your book and the author’s full name at the top of your review
*Clearly write your name, if you would like it printed, at the bottom of your review
*Only submit a ‘hard’ copy of your review, which can be typed or scribed in legible handwriting.

Also, please show us you love your library by:
* encouraging a friend/family member who has not yet joined the library to do so (to join, adults must show proof of ID and proof of address dated within the last three months);
* attending our Book Club for adults on the last Saturday of the month at 2.30pm (see previous Events post or posters in library for details);
* attending at least one of our regular baby and toddler activities (see previous Events post or pick up a leaflet at the library for details).
