National Day of Library Action: Saturday 5th February

This Saturday (5th), library users from across the county have organised events in their local libraries. The day will be fun and celebratory but makes a serious point about the role libraries play in our communities.

Events include read-ins and read-athons, story and drawing workshops for children and creative writing classes and talks from well-known authors. A list of events taking place in libraries across the county can be viewed here. Four locally-based writers will also be racing round as many libraries as possible as the ‘flying authors’, entertaining library users along the way with stories, poems and songs. Stops on the tour can be viewed here.

We hope you will be able to join us at one of these events or can help in publicising these events to your constituents and local contacts.

With best wishes,
Demelza

Important note: These events have not been arranged by library staff but by library users.

Friends of Gloucestershire Libraries.

The county-wide petition calling for an urgent and independent review of Gloucestershire County Council’s plans for our library service is available to download or in e-petition format.
