National Libraries Day 2015

Saturday 7th February is National Libraries Day which is a culmination of a week’s worth of celebrations in schools, colleges, universities, workplaces and public libraries across the UK. This year to celebrate NLD we will be giving out free tea, coffee and homemade goodies throughout the day and asking customers to take a ‘shelfie’ (more info about shelfies below) and post it to our Instagram or Twitter page using #NLD15.


 We will also be holding a raffle during the week starting 2nd February – 7th February; all you have to do is show your library card and you’ll be given a raffle ticket to win our book lovers hamper. We have one for adults and one for children. This raffle is open to old and new members of the library.


If you’ve not heard of a shelfie before we have an example below from library assistant Sophie. We would love for you to take a shelfie in front of your favourite part of the library either on your own or with a friend and then upload it on to Twitter to @douglasboroughc or on to Instagram to @douglaslibrary and use #NLD15. If you’re not on social media then you can email your shelfie to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . We will then select our favourite shelfies to appear on our website!
Don’t miss out; visit HBN Library on National Libraries Day 2015!
