Norfolk Libraries Week

Monday 8 to Saturday 13 October 2018
See website and invidual libraries for details


As the North Norfolk Coast begins to move out of Covid-19 lockdown, and tourism businesses re-open, more planned events are taking place.  These are just listings, so please follow links and check with organisers of events before assuming events are running.


Celebrating the nationís much-loved libraries. This year, with a focus on wellbeing, libraries across the country will showcase how they bring communities together, combat loneliness, provide a space for reading and creativity and support people.

To mark Libraries Week, most of Norfolkís libraries will host a Free Just a Cuppa Coffee morning Ė there will be tea, coffee and the chance to chat and socialise.

There will also be a virtual Just a Cuppa and book chat taking place via the Norfolk Borrowerís Facebook group on Monday 8 October,  Tuesday 9 October and Wednesday 10 October, 7Ė8pm.  If you want to take part you just need to be a member of the group, be on Facebook from 7pm and join in!  Thereíll also be book give-aways each day.  The group provides a place for people to share what theyíre reading with others.

Weíre celebrating the wellbeing benefits that reading provides.  Research shows that reading for pleasure has been linked to a reduction in stress, the symptoms of depression and the risk of developing dementia in later life.  Why not pop in to a library and borrow a book during libraries week?  Or download an eBook, eAudio book or eMagazine
