Libraries Week 2021

Libraries Week is an annual showcase and celebration of the best that libraries have to offer. 

In 2021, Libraries Week takes place between the 4th and 10th October, celebrating the nation’s much-loved libraries and the central role that libraries play in their community as a driver for inclusion, sustainability, social mobility and community cohesion.
