National Libraries Day


Saturday 6 February is National Libraries Day. We have some special events arranged and many regular events have a special twist. Have a look at the blog What’s On page for a full list. There’s so much going on in libraries today and we are still free to use! Books and reading groups and storytimes of course but you can find out how to improve your health, learn how to cook,start your family history using our free resources, play scrabble or do a jigsaw, download a free magazine or talking book, enjoy crafts and chat to other fact, there is not much you can’t do in a library!

One special event is on Monday 8 February, 10.00am at Hemsworth Library. Joan Hart, local author, will be talking about her book “At the coal face: the heart-warming true story of a Yorkshire Pit Nurse” It’s a free event but please call the library on 01977 722270 or email  to reserve a place

So tell your family and friends about the library or better still, bring them along to explore and join. It’s your library- join it, use it, love it!
