National Libraries Day – Saturday 6th February

Saturday 6th February is National Libraries Day. An annual occurrence marked by events across the UK in celebration of the work of libraries.

UoN Libraries have a comprehensive collection of resources to support your academic studies (as well as a broad collection of fiction and world literature for your reading pleasure).

Nottingham also boasts sixteen public libraries (with many more in the surrounding areas of Nottinghamshire – including Beeston Library), which offer access to vital information and services to all who live in the city. Public libraries contribute immeasurably to building and championing local culture and communities – as well as supporting vulnerable members of society with home and prison library services.

Why not join your local public library and take advantage of it’s extensive range of classic and contemporary fiction,  graphic novels, e-resources (which can be accessed from home) and a large selection of DVDs?

Nottingham’s public libraries also house local studies resources, host events and reading groups so drop in and see what treasures you can find!
