National Libraries Week, 30th January to 4th February

All of our libraries will participate in the following:


Libraries Challenge – Win a Kindle!
The challenge begins on Monday 30th January 2012. Entry forms containing the questions can be collected from all our libraries. The challenge involves answering questions using some of our online services as well as visiting at least 3 of our libraries over the week. Entrants must be library members to access the online resources.

Design a Mobile Library
All libraries will have a stock of templates for children to collect and design their own mobile library. There will be a prize in each library for ages 5-8 and 9-12.

I Love Libraries because…
On Facebook, Twitter and in person, we’d like to know why you love libraries. Adults and teens can tweet us, post on our Facebook wall or hand in a note telling us why they love libraries. Our favourite in each branch will win a prize.

Specific Events at libraries are as follows:
Headquarters
Library and Museum Headquarters, Dunbar Road, Haddington, EH41 3PJ
Open Day – Friday 3rd February 12-5
Timed guided tours at 12pm, 1pm, 2pm, 3pm and 4pm. Visitors are asked to arrive for one of these time slots and will be given information about what we have at Library HQ and what we do for the lending branches, schools etc. followed by a cuppa. This is a chance to see what happens behind the scenes to keep your library service going.
