Taking action, changing lives, is the message behind Libraries Week 2021, running from October 4 -10 nationwide, being celebrated by Lincs Inspire Libraries with the return of many services, activities and new projects on the horizon.
From October 5, weekly Shake, Rattle and Read sessions will return to Cleethorpes, Grimsby, Immingham and Waltham Libraries for pre-school children and families, joining Little Readers weekly sessions that recently returned across all branches. October half term will also see the return of additional children’s activities.
The local heritage project Streets and Their Stories, picks up where it left off from before the pandemic. People are invited to share their memories about North East Lincolnshire’s past, and learn more about the local history through a series of exhibitions.
Vikings, Normans and Zeppelins is the next exhibition taking place on October 23, 10am to 3pm at St Giles’ Large Hall, Scartho, telling the story of the history of Scartho.
Libraries Week is a great opportunity for us to shout about all the exciting things going on within our branches.
We have a vast range of resources to borrow in many formats, as well as access to countless digital resources, including eBooks, eAudio, eMagazines and eNewspapers via Libby, our free library App. A home library service and library takeaway service are available for people who can’t access our branches. Local and family history workshops will soon be returning.Derek O’Connell, Development Manager, Lincs Inspire Libraries
In the near future, Grimsby Central Library will be offering support and advice for starting, protecting and growing successful small businesses via a brand-new service available in partnership with The Business and IP Centre in Hull.
