National Libraries Day will be taking place on 6 February 2016 to celebrate public libraries and the library workforce.
Libraries form an invaluable asset at the heart of local communities: providing sources of information, entertainment and inspiration; a gateway to literature and learning, and offering a practical support network for those in need. They are free to enter and open to everyone, allowing all to come in and expand their horizons.
To celebrate the great role they play, across Tynedale we will be treated to a great variety of events taking place in our libraries next week.
