Cumbria Libraries celebrate National Libraries Week with free community events

From 4 - 10 October Cumbria Libraries are hosting a variety of fantastic events to showcase how libraries in the county are ‘taking action and changing lives,’ the theme for this year’s National Libraries Week.

In celebration of this national event Cumbria’s Libraries are hosting a variety of free activities for all the family to come and enjoy. From Lego Club and Baby Bounce groups to local history talks, there will be something for everyone. They will take place in libraries across Cumbria for all the community to enjoy. To find out what events are happening near you, contact your local library. Contact details can be found on the Cumbria Libraries website.

Libraries are an important asset for the whole community. They not only provide access to books but also help people explore new opportunities, bring people together, and provide practical support and guidance. Come to our events to enjoy the fun and discover what your local library has to offer.

Cllr Deborah Earl, Cabinet Member for Public Health and Local Communities, said:

“I am pleased the council is supporting National Libraries Week. Libraries are important community hubs that provide access to a wide variety of services, opportunities and information. Maintaining access to these services during the pandemic has been crucial in supporting the health and wellbeing of our residents.

“Keeping ourselves occupied and healthy is vital during these challenging times, so National Libraries Week is the perfect opportunity to visit your local branch, whether it be to browse our collection of books, open your mind to new courses, attend one of the many events or even just for a nosey!”
