Libraries run across Bath and North East Somerset are celebrating National Libraries Day on Saturday 8th February as part of the nationwide celebration.
The aim of the day is to encourage people to visit their local library and discover the wide range of services on offer, and for regular users to encourage their friends and family members to make use of libraries.
With free lifetime membership for all ages – access to over 100 libraries across the Libraries West region and over 1.7 million items available to borrow including free e-Books and free e-Audiobooks, there is a lot to celebrate.
Promotions on the day will include half price DVD hire in all Bath & North East Somerset Council libraries plus the chance to win a Samsung Galaxy Tablet or new DVDs for anyone borrowing at least 3 physical items or joining online at www.librarieswest.org.uk.
Children will be challenged to find the hidden book characters in each library in a free, fun treasure trail.
At Bath Central Library there will be free “Behind the Scenes” tours of the Library – places are limited for the tours so please book your place by dropping in to Bath Central Library.
Councillor David Dixon (Lib-Dem, Oldfield), Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods, said: “National Libraries Day is a celebration of what is great about our libraries and library staff, and Bath & North East Somerset Council is proud to be part of it. We want everyone to have a library in their life and benefit from the many free resources available.”
