Norfolk Libraries Week

Monday 8 to Saturday 13 October 2018
See website and invidual libraries for details

Celebrating the nation’s much-loved libraries. This year, with a focus on wellbeing, libraries across the country will showcase how they bring communities together, combat loneliness, provide a space for reading and creativity and support people.

To mark Libraries Week, most of Norfolk’s libraries will host a Free Just a Cuppa Coffee morning – there will be tea, coffee and the chance to chat and socialise.

There will also be a virtual Just a Cuppa and book chat taking place via the Norfolk Borrower’s Facebook group on Monday 8 October,  Tuesday 9 October and Wednesday 10 October, 7–8pm.  If you want to take part you just need to be a member of the group, be on Facebook from 7pm and join in!  There’ll also be book give-aways each day.  The group provides a place for people to share what they’re reading with others.

We’re celebrating the wellbeing benefits that reading provides.  Research shows that reading for pleasure has been linked to a reduction in stress, the symptoms of depression and the risk of developing dementia in later life.  Why not pop in to a library and borrow a book during libraries week?  Or download an eBook, eAudio book or eMagazine
