Welcome to Libraries Week 2021!

Libraries Week is an annual showcase and celebration of the best that libraries have to offer. Each year has a theme and this year’s is “taking action and changing lives!”

We are focusing on how our service and resources help to change lives for the better, whether that be by supporting Health and Wellbeing initiatives, or by saving valuable time by providing the means of finding information quickly.

As usual, we also have a competition with fantastic prizes!


October is also Black History Month and the wellbeing team have some events planned and we also have a number of books by black authors coming to our libraries soon!

Supporting Your Health and Wellbeing

We have a collection of fiction and leisure in our libraries, selected from various Health and Wellbeing lists, available for all users. Drawing on this, we also run the UHDB LKS Book Club, meeting once every 8 weeks to discuss a book, hand-picked by one of our team.
