Get ready for Libraries Week

Engage new audiences and promote your services and events this Libraries Week!

Libraries Week is the annual showcase of the best that UK libraries of all kinds have to offer, with a focus in 2023 on celebrating the role of libraries in supporting life-long learning.

We want to encourage and support libraries in every sector to reach out to their community and local media to highlight the diverse ways that they are motivating their users to build skills and confidence at every stage of their lives – whether it be empowering people in the workplace, helping to build active citizens, instilling creativity or supporting mental health and wellbeing.

We have templates, tips and guides to help you plan, market and promote your events. To get you started here is a step by step plan to help you have a successful Libraries Week.
