Activities on offer for National Libraries Week

A range of special events are taking place across Wiltshire as part of National Libraries Week.

The event, which runs until October 9, is seeing venues including those in Salisbury and Amesbury host a range of activities for adults and young people.

Activities and events include opportunities to learn more about nature, how to get the most from the internet, how to share rhymes with your child to develop their communication skills and listening to authors sharing their passion for writing.

Cllr Ian Blair-Pilling, Wiltshire Council’s cabinet member for libraries, said: “Libraries Week is a week-long celebration of the nation’s much-loved libraries, with a focus in 2022 on supporting life-long learning and the central role that libraries play in inspiring learning for all and helping individuals to unlock and fulfil their potential at every stage of life.

“During Libraries week we have a brilliant programme of activities taking place in our libraries across the county that we hope will bring the community together to find out more about all the ways using a library empowers life-long learning. Everyone is welcome and the library is free to join.”
