National Libraries Week

About Libraries Week - 9 - 14 October 2017

Libraries Week, 9 – 14 October 2017, will replace National Libraries Day, previously held in February. The countdown to the inaugural Libraries Week will launch on Saturday 4 February 2017 and libraries with activity already planned for 4 February 2017 are encouraged to continue with their plans as the transition to a new date gets underway.

More details about Libraries Week will be announced in February along with a call for UK libraries to sign up and commit to planning, delivering and locally promoting high quality co-ordinated experiences during Libraries Week.

The event is open to all types of library, with public libraries encouraged to showcase their strongest services and activities across themes such as digital, creative, family, inspirational, health, employment collection-based or education. Libraries can also become supporters, helping to promote Libraries Week in their region or service. There will be support for libraries to get the most from Libraries Week.

CILIP is encouraging library providers and heads of service to begin planning for Libraries Week as a key marketing activity and to consider applying for funding or working with local schools, companies and community groups to promote their activities, bring in new audiences and run an exciting programme during the second week of October.
