Libraries Week - United Kingdom
|Date:||09 October 2017 to 14 October 2017|
|Location:||London, United Kingdom|
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 February are encouraged to continue with their plans as the transition to a new date gets underway.
Nick Poole, CILIP CEO said: “Libraries Week is an opportunity to celebrate the very best that libraries have to offer across the UK. During the second week in October, we want to ensure that as many people as possible are inspired to visit a library, discover what's on offer & encourage their friends & family to get involved.
I am delighted that we have been able to respond to feedback from the library community by expanding from a single day to a week-long celebration of libraries, enabling us to include more partners and develop a really exciting programme for the public.
CILIP and our national partners are committed to ensuring that Libraries Week receives widespread visibility and support. Whatever type of library you work in, we need you to join us and help ensure the success of Libraries Week."
