Take part in libraries celebration

Swindon Advertiser: Central Library, which is part of the project Central Library, which is part of the project

LIBRARY users across Wiltshire will be asked to sum up what they love about their libraries using words and images, as part of a national celebration next month.

People’s contributions will be collected from February 3 to 8 to create a “love libraries” display.

At six of the bigger libraries, customers will be asked to participate in a photo collage where they are photographed holding a sign saying what they are doing in the library that day.

The photo collage will take place on Wednesday, February 5 at Royal Wootton Bassett Library. The idea is to capture a snapshot of the range of activities offered to users in an average week.

The collage will be used with quotes from the ‘love libraries’ displays and will be available to view at various libraries later in the year.

Throughout the week there will be a range of free activities in some libraries including teddy bear themed rhyme times, eBook support sessions, town trails, poetry sharing sessions and quizzes.

Throughout February customers will also be encouraged to nominate a friend or family member to join the library. Both will be entered into a prize draw to win book-related items.

Cabinet member for libraries, Wiltshire Councillor Jonathon Seed, said: “This is an excellent opportunity to celebrate what libraries mean to different people and I would encourage as many people as possible to get involved and see what their local library has to offer.”
