Discover Something New During Libraries Week

Celebrate Libraries Week by discovering the range of things you can do at your Lincs Inspire Library from 9 – 14 October.



As well as a packed weekly programme of activities, Lincs Inspire Libraries is hosting a series of special events to encourage more people to realise the benefits of their local library and archives services.

Steve Hipkins, Lincs Inspire Head of Cultural Services, said: “We have a great programme of activities during Libraries Week for everyone. As well as supporting local writers and encouraging as many people as possible to discover new authors and reading genres, we’d like to see new customers try one of our weekly activities. From reading groups and clubs,  to getting support with using the internet, there is a host of events and activities taking place in our libraries every day.”
