Celebrate National Libraries Day and enjoy free half-term activities

This Saturday, 6th February, is National Libraries Day.

All libraries in South Gloucestershire will be holding free treasure hunts for children to find the famous children’s book characters that have been hidden around the library. They will also all be holding a free story time at 11am, reading family favourite ‘The Gruffalo’ by Julia Donaldson. The story time is suitable for children and families (children under 8 must be accompanied by an adult).

Anyone of any age can get in touch on the day via Twitter (@LibrariesWest #librariesday) and on Facebook (/librarieswest) to share what they love most about their library. You can find your nearest library at and there is more info on National Libraries Day at

As usual during half term there will be a range of activities for children - you can find out more here.

And of course if you value your local library, watch out for the consultation later this month on the future of our libraries. We'll keep you posted.
