Residents are being urged to enjoy National Libraries Week and pop along to Beverley Library in order and see what’s on offer.
Libraries taking part this year will be focusing on wellbeing, tackling topics like loneliness and how communities are brought together.
Councillor Richard Burton, the portfolio holder for leisure, tourism and culture, said;
“National Libraries Week is a great opportunity to promote and celebrate our hugely popular and successful libraries here in the East Riding.”
“Libraries are about so much more than simply borrowing and returning books these days. I would encourage anybody who would like to get involved in everything that our libraries offer to join free of charge next week.”
To take up the opportunity to join, pop into any East Riding Library or Mobile, or visit one of the ‘pop-up’ joining station at East Riding Leisure Beverley on Tuesday, 9 October 3 pm – 4.30pm.
There will also be a National Libraries Week Free Children’s Dance Workshop on Saturday, 13 October from 10.30am-11.30am at Beverley Library.
Join in this fabulous, fun and creative dance workshop for children aged 7-9, based on the ‘Freaky Family’ books by Laurence Anholt.
The children’s library will be closed for the duration of the workshop so dancers can be free and fearless! Limited places available.
Book now in Beverley Library or phone on 01482 392750 to avoid disappointment.
