Libraries Week 2020

5 October 2020


Libraries Week is an annual showcase and celebration of the best that libraries have to offer. Each year they pick a theme and explore the innovative and surprising things that libraries are doing to support their communities.

In 2020, Libraries Week will take place between Monday 5 and Saturday 10 October, celebrating the nation's much-loved libraries and their vital role in the UK's book culture. Libraries in all sectors are encouraged to celebrate books and reading, showcase their reading offer and the contribution they make towards building a Nation of Readers.

Keep up to date with Libraries Week 2020 by following @librariesweek.

CILIP Scotland runs #Library5 its annual social media campaign for Libraries Week, designed to showcase the wide variety of brilliant services that libraries have on offer.

They set a daily theme from Monday to Friday during Libraries Week and libraries all over Scotland get involved by sharing news and/or pictures relevant to each theme. Most of the themes tie into the overall focus of Libraries Week which is 'Your Passport to Reading'.

  • Day one: Reading #Reading
  • Day two: Services for young people #YoungPeople
  • Day three: The library online #DigitalLibrary
  • Day four: Reading Champions #ReadingChampions
  • Day five: All things 'library' #YourLibrary
