Celebrate National Libraries Day in a library near you!

1 Mins read
National Libraries Day is being celebrated this year on 6 February and Libraries NI is inviting customers to call into any of its 96 public libraries across Northern Ireland from Monday 1 – Saturday 6 February to get involved!

Library callers will be able to take part in ‘What does your library mean to you?’ a special social media photograph campaign running on the day.

Pop into the library any day during the week of 1 February and get your photo taken with a message board to share with the general public what the library means to you.

Visitors will be given a message board to write a brief message, which could say what they did in the library on that day, the name of the book they just borrowed, what they love about libraries, the best thing about their library or a drawing or poem simply saying what the library means to them!

These message board photos will then be uploaded to the National Libraries Day Flickr page and the library’s own Facebook page or Libraries NI Facebook page at Facebook.com/LibrariesNorthernIreland

Younger library callers will be able to take part in a range of specially themed National Libraries Day events being held for children to enjoy. Ask in your local library or check out the Libraries NI website for details of these free events which include Rhythm and Rhyme (for babies and pre-school children), Storytimes and craft sessions.

Irene Knox, Chief Executive of Libraries NI, explained:

“Libraries NI is delighted to be a part of National Libraries Day by inviting people to call in and take part in the ‘What does your library mean to you?’ campaign which will share our love of libraries, books and reading with the general public. This year’s campaign aims to showcase what libraries have to offer for different age groups and interests and we would like to attract as many visitors as possible to local libraries across Northern Ireland during the first week of February. So we hope you will put the date in your diary and participate in these week-long events to celebrate libraries.”
