Host of events in celebration of Libraries Week
October 2, 2017
A whole host of events and activities are being lined up across Cheshire East in celebration of Libraries Week.
Taking place from October 9-14, Libraries Week is an annual showcase of the creative, innovative and diverse activities that libraries have to offer.
Throughout the week, Cheshire East libraries will be holding a variety of events for all ages, including a Lego club, library discovery trail and rhymetime and storytime sessions for children, e-reading sessions, current affairs discussions, coffee mornings and a murder mystery event for adults.
Councillor Peter Groves, cabinet member for libraries at Cheshire East Council, said: “We’re really pleased to be able to join in with Libraries Week and it is a great opportunity for our residents to discover the range of services and resources, which are available to access at Cheshire East’s libraries.
“Our libraries are not just about borrowing books – residents can also borrow items such as games and DVDs, take part in activities and access computers. Thousands of e-resources can also be accessed via our website, such as e-books and e-magazines.
“All our libraries have customer service points, where people can find out information about council services, access planning applications online, present benefit claims and more.
“I hope Libraries Week will encourage even more people to visit our libraries and access the fantastic facilities on offer.”
For a full list of activities, please visit your local library, check the library’s dedicated Facebook page or visit: cheshire East libraries.
While many of the events are free, places are limited and booking in advance may be necessary.
