A week celebrating the resources and activities that libraries have to offer!
I’m so lucky to live on the same street as my local library but I still don’t use it as often as I should. I had cause to pop in a few Saturday’s ago to take advantage of the computers and more specifically their internet and because I have a library card I got 2 hours free usage!
My local library (Bridgnorth, Shropshire) has a number of events going on during this week to celebrate National Libraries Week; here’s what they’ve got going on:
Book Launch – The Marvellous Marathon Dragon – Saturday October 7th 10:00am
(so not technically during the main week but a great kick off)
You can meet the author, illustrator and the Asthma dragon. The book will also be available to buy on the day. This is a free event!
An evening with Jenny Blackhurst (the event I’m most excited about) – October 9th 7pm
Shropshire author Jenny Blackhurst visits to celebrate National Libraries Week! Hear about her bestselling novels and her new title The Foster Child.
Bookstart Rhyme Time – October 9th 10:30am
Rhymes, Songs and Stories for under five.
Community directory drop-in session – October 9th 2pm
See a demonstration of the online directory, find a new hobby, exercise class or self-help group or get your organisation added.
Yoga and relaxation session – October 10th 10am
Celebrate National Libraries week, with something different.
Creative writing workshop – October 11th 1pm
£2.50 per person.
I am tempted by this workshop: just to give it a go. I never liked reading out I’d written in class though so I’m a bit shall I/shan’t I?
On Cloud Nine with Time to Listen – October 11th 11am
To celebrate National Libraries Week with a special feel-good session of Time to Listen! Pull up a chair and relax while we read extracts from fiction and poetry on an uplifting theme.
