Libraries Week is back! Taking place between the 3rd and 9th October 2022, Libraries Week is an annual showcase and celebration of the best that libraries have to offer, and this year we’ll be highlighting the central role that libraries play in supporting life-long learning. We want to showcase how libraries across all sectors are inspiring learning for all and helping individuals to unlock and fulfil their potential at every stage of life.

CILIPS’s plans include the legendary Library 5, a series of exciting events (spoiler alert: get those quizzing hats at the ready!), terrific social media takeovers and much more. If you’re eager to get involved and help demonstrate the vital role libraries play in lifelong learning, while also learning new skills ourselves, here are some possibilities:

  • The blog – We know that our members are always learning, across every area of our incredible sector, so why not share your experiences with others via the CILIPS blog? Whether transitioning from urban to rural libraries or learning how to create an escape room, this is the place to share wherever your learning takes you…
  • The takeovers – After the success of last year, these coveted slots are filling up fast, but we still have one social media takeover available for a lucky library or librarian in the CILIPS community! If you fancy taking the reins of CILIPS Twitter and Instagram to share all the ways in which the work you do contributes to lifelong learning, please get in touch.
  • The skill share – CPD is at the heart of CILIPS, which is why we want this Libraries Week to enhance our members’ lifelong learning too! If there’s a particular skill you’ve always wanted to learn but never had the chance before now, this is your chance – suggestions welcome – and equally, if you have an idea, ability or skill you’d like to share with your fellow members, please let us know.

Keep up to date with Libraries Week 2022 by following @librariesweek and share your plans at #LibrariesWeek. Library staff and supporters can also register for updates via the Libraries Week website, where you’ll learn the latest news about campaign assets, case studies and more. 

For further inspiration, why not relive the wonderful Libraries Week Scotland 2021? From exciting events to terrific social takeovers, our nation’s library workers showed how they are #ChangingLives every day!
