The Library Campaign is joining Libraries Week in style, with the launch of our new Instagram  presence and we’re hitting the national press with a topical message for Boris Johnson: if you want real levelling up, libraries can deliver far more than multi-billion projects like HS2. And far more cheaply!
Meanwhile, Friends of Sandal Library in Wakefield are supporting the Week where it counts – locally. They are using Libraries Week artwork to boost their message about activities at the library. On Tuesday they are inviting local councillors for tea and (of course!) cake at their gardening club.
If your Friends group is active on social media, Libraries Week is a chance to amplify your messages and photos. Tag your posts with #LibrariesWeek or @librariesweek. If you have a good story to tell about the difference your library makes, make it national news by contributing it to the #ShareTheChange campaign. Find out more at http://librariesweek.org.uk/share-the-change.
There’s plenty more for all to to enjoy via the Libraries Week website (http://librariesweek.org.uk).
They include (Monday 4th, 7pm) a special book event with author Femi Fadugba, talking about his new book The Upper World, a game-changing young adult thriller that defies space and time, in which the library
has a part to play…
On Wednesday, The Reading Agency launches new free, online reading for pleasure game for children, The Reading Adventure.
Each day, organisers CILIP will crowdsource contributions to its #Changing Lives Reading List with books to educate and inspire on a range of topics from anti-racism, LGBTQ+ and disability to mental health, well-being and climate change. Share your book finds and suggestions!
To join in these and many more activities, there’s only one place to go – http://librariesweek.org.uk
