People in Stone are being urged to visit their local library and join the celebrations as part of National Libraries Week
The annual campaign, from 9 to 14 October, is a chance for people to discover the huge range of creative, innovative and diverse things they can do at their local library. This year’s theme and message is simply ‘discover something new at your local library’.
Staffordshire County Council’s libraries service will be joining in the celebrations by hosting a week of their own activities and encouraging people to join.
At Stone library there will be the launch of a new Knit and Natter Group on Wednesday starting at 10:00am and on Friday they have some Spooky stories for children at 11:00.
The library staff have done a great display and are asking people to leave comments on why they love Stone Library…
Gill Heath, Libraries Chief at Staffordshire County Council said:
“National Library Week is one of the key events in the libraries calendar and puts public libraries on a national stage. And, here in Staffordshire our 43 libraries are joining in the celebrations with lots of fun activities for all age’s right across the county.“If you haven’t been into a library recently I’m sure you’ll be surprised by the amount of different things you can do there. As well as all the books, e-books and e-magazines, you’ll also get free Wi-Fi and the chance to take part in lots of groups and activities. There’s never been a better time to be a member of your local library. And, it’s free.”
