#ShareTheChange this Libraries Week

This Libraries Week, as we celebrate the nation’s much-loved libraries and their vital role in supporting active and engaged communities, we are inviting people to take part in CILIP’s photo campaign to get the nation sharing stories of the change the library has made to their life or how the library has enabled them to make a positive impact on their community.

From health & wellbeing initiatives to combatting social isolation, providing support for vulnerable groups, digital inclusion, and climate action, the library is a place for coming together and taking action. This is an opportunity to display how libraries and individuals are making a difference in their communities and inspire others to take action.

To take part simply share your library photos and stories with the hashtags #ShareTheChange and #LibrariesWeek. Launching on social media on Monday 4th October, the first day of Libraries Week, this could include photos that represent your library story or images of individuals or groups taking part in local community action at the library, with the library, or in the local community.

Get Involved
