Get involved with National Libraries Week!
11th Sep 2018

The theme for this year’s Libraries Week is Wellbeing. As part of their celebrations, Somerset Libraries are offering local health and wellbeing organisations the opportunity to put on a special event or activity at their local library.

The week runs from the 8th to the 13th October, with all libraries in Somerset taking part. If your organisation is interested in hosting an event that week, Somerset Libraries would love to hear from you.

Events could include a participatory event, a drop in session or simply an information stand. Wednesday 10th October is also World Mental Health Awareness day so they are particularly keen to host mental health themed activities on that day. Nationally, there is also a push to get as many choirs singing in libraries as possible, so they are also interested in singing events.

It's a great opportunity to promote your work, so contact Alex (Somerset Libraries Health and Wellbeing Development Officer) on acunninghamscott@somerset.gov.uk to get involved. Alternatively, you can approach your local library directly.
