Libraries Week 2020

Libraries Week is the annual, week-long celebration of the UK’s libraries! In 2020, it is taking place from 5th-10th of October and the theme is ‘Your Passport to Reading‘. This theme is all about showcasing libraries and their vital contributions to the UK’s book culture.

Libraries in all sectors, from public and school to higher education and health, are encouraged to get involved, celebrate books and reading, showcase their offer and services, and let everybody know how they contribute to building a Nation of Readers.

At CILIP Scotland, we support Libraries Week each year in various ways (find out what we did last year) and this year is no different. In 2020 we will be:

  1. Supporting CILIP to get the word out about Libraries Week and encouraging our members to get involved. In particular, we want to see lots of people sharing their Reading Selfie on Twitter – tag us and we’ll retweet! Click here for the editable social media graphic
  2. Working with partners in Scotland to share stories about our brilliant libraries
  3. Running another #Library5 campaign. We continue to be inspired each year by the brilliant #Archive30 run by ARA Scotland on Twitter and, following the success of last year’s #Library5 campaign, we’re setting daily themes again this year and asking you to share pictures and news from your library!

We would also love to hear what you are getting up to in your library to celebrate this year. Get in touch with us via email or Tweet us @CILIPScotland to let us know and we’ll share on our social media and website.

Additionally, you can keep up to date with Libraries Week 2020 by following @librariesweek on Twitter and using #LibrariesWeek to share your plans.
