Our Fulford children loved Libraries week this October and celebrated by visiting the libraries in Fulford and Rowntree Park. The children enjoyed choosing books to bring back to nursery and listening to stories and rhymes whilst they were there. #Fulford #yorkshiremontessori #montessori #nursery #york #LibrariesWeek #rowntreeparkreadingcafe

"A procession was formed and thereafter proceeded from the Town Hall to Park-green, where Mr Chadwick handed a gold key to the mayor in token of possession of the building...the library was opened amid loud huzzahs."⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Libraries have been bringing communities together for centuries in a love of books and reading. Check out our blog (link in bio) to get a flavour of some of the library archives held at Cheshire Record Office and to see how libraries have changed over the years!⁣ 📚 ⁣ ⁣ #loveyourlibrary #librariesweek #bibliophile #cheshire #archives #explorearchives #archivesofinstagram #archivesunlocked #history #specialcollections #specialcollectionsofinstagram #historynerd #historylover #oldbooks #rarebooks #bookstagram #bookcommunity #libraries #librariesofinstagram #rarebooksofinstagram #manuscripts #books #bookhistory

Did you catch our final #LibrariesWeek blog post on Friday? We explored a document put together by library staff 20 years ago, celebrating St George's move to Tooting.

Massive well done to all the libraries and collaborators involved in putting on recent Fun Palaces events! Fab free events in community centres where people take the opportunity to share their arts and science skills with the public. Some highlights for us were making AfroTots dancing belts, weaving, origami, helping build a flag celebrating migration with @journeysfest , poetry writing and henna art with @mifestival participants and @henna.fusionz - congratulations everyone! ✨💛 #mcrcreativespaces . . . . . . . . #community #culture #creativity #librariesweek #wythenshawe #longsight #harpurhey #migration #celebration #skillsshare #manchester #art #crafters #craft #making #sharing #local #togetherness #journeysmcr #funpalaces
My first (and I really really hope not my last) #socialbookday . Thanks to @libreriamo for making me do this reflection. Giorgio Bassani, "Il romanzo di Ferrara". La #passione che nutro per i #libri credo sia direttamente proporzionale all'amore che #Bassani dimostra per la sua città: #Ferrara . Infatti, in questo romanzo che racconta una #vita e insieme tante vite, l'autore ci invita a sederci insieme al Caffè della Borsa, a camminare lenti lenti lungo Corso Giovecca; poi a osservare con discrezione e mal celata curiosità le comunelle in Piazza della Certosa, fino a sgattaiolare furtivamente lungo i nebbiosi bastioni... Lo scrittore non dipinge protagonisti, ma affresca un insieme variegato e unitario, nobile e grezzo, vecchio e giovane gruppo di personaggi secondari che orbitano intorno all'unica vera (o fittizia?) costante: la città. Ed é proprio questa visione di insieme che spero di afferrare lenta lenta nel corso della mia avventura da lettrice; desidero non avere un libro protagonista, un libro che sovrasta tutti gli altri. Voglio trovare la mia costante tra le tante storie, i differenti caratteri e le continue descrizioni, senza però sceglierla in un unico libro. Voglio che la mia costante, come la Ferrara di Bassani, sia un mosaico di vite solitarie e intrecciate. Non questo autore o quel racconto. Non quel saggio o quel dialogo. Leggerò e ascolterò per scoprire e cambiare molto di ciò che sta dentro e fuori di me. #libricherimagono #socialbookday #libridaleggere #libri #book #lettura #reflection #riflessione #libreriamo #librariesweek #librerie #romanzo #italiainlettura #lafeltrinelli #consiglidilettura
I'm in need of help... my eldest (7) has to dress up as a book character tomorrow as part of her school doing a focus on reading month (so no you haven't forgotten world book day before you panic! 🤣  incidentally they will announce the 2019 chosen books at 9.30am) ... despite my best intentions to get organised last week I just haven't.  So now I have less than 24 hours to sort something out i.e. Amazon Prime can't help.  Ideas please?!?

It’s a wrap folks! #fabulafestival2018 is over for this year. We loved curating and delivering this amazing festival. Here are some of the many highlights of the last 6 days! So many people to thank (will try and name check them all over the next few posts) firstly a massive thank you to @adam.stower for creating 140 new illustrators, @thepoetrytakeaway for the hundreds of poems that got written, #stringalongapuppet for bringing alive the story of #theelvesandtheshoemaker for a new generation of theatre goers, to @newhambookshop for securing the most fantastic speakers in #rachelholmes and Baroness #shamichakrabarti and to the team at Redbridge Libraries and @redbridgearts who have worked so hard this weekend! @londonlibraries @librariesweek @redbridgecouncil @arenaillustration @do_morered #librariesweek #worldsofpossibilities #redbridge #redbridgelibraries #fabulafestival
Our local library has always been a haven for us - and a particular saviour on rainy days! 🌧️📚The librarians are especially patient of wild and errand toddlers perusing the foreign language DVD shelves and chasing each other around the tables. I always find it deeply satisfying myself to order and collect my own books. (And panic read them before they're overdue!) Ah, and I have such fond memories taking Ada there when she was only a couple of months old for Wednesday rhyme time and being like, jeez, what the hell is 'Wind the bobbin up'??!! #librariesweek #saveourlibraries
#LibrariesWeek Many of the books in the Wanlockhead Miner's Library have a religious topic, like this book about the works of a Scottish religious reformer: https://buff.ly/2B2fIkA #GoIndustrial

Day off at last Gonna curl up with this, which i ordered from the fab Bradford Libraries, so excited to read it #librariesweek #DamianLaBas
Today is the last day of Libraries week. Along with all the great spaces within both our libraries there are also plenty of lovely places around campus to study. With access to Discover and e-books it means you can study where you want. There are also laptops available in both libraries as short loan items and they can be used anywhere on campus that has an Eduroam Wi-Fi connection.

I have spent the week immersed in understanding how fiction is presented to adolescent audiences. Do we use the Teen label? Do librarians get with the times and adopt the #yalit #ya categories in efforts at responsive classification? I would love to hear back from British public library staff on this to gauge what the current climate is. If you can spare a few minutes to complete my brief web survey and carry on this discussion I would be most appreciative: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/YAClassificationSurvey #librariesweek

#Repost @britishlibrary ・・・ Why are libraries so important? We continue our #LibrariesWeek celebration with some wise and wonderful words from @stephenfryactually.
"A library in the middle of a community is a cross between an emergency exit, a life raft and a festival. They are cathedrals of the mind; hospitals of the soul; theme parks of the imagination. On a cold, rainy island, they are the only sheltered public spaces where you are not a consumer, but a citizen instead. A human with a brain and a heart and a desire to be uplifted, rather than a customer with a credit card and an inchoate 'need' for 'stuff'. A mall - the shops - are places where your money makes the wealthier wealthy. But a library is where the wealthy's taxes pay for you to become a little more extraordinary instead. A satisfying reversal. A balancing of the power." - Caitlin Moran Today is the last day of Libraries Week in the UK and I borrowed this collection of essays (and a couple of stories) about the wonder and importance of libraries. I now feel an even stronger sense of joy and love for public libraries than I already did. #nonfiction #anthology #libraries #essays #librariesweek #bookstagram #bookquotes
Day 6 of #LibrariesWeek , and a quote for all of us who can't resist just one more chapter. A library card guarantees you a lifetime supply of books - just make you you also invest in a great alarm clock! #librarylife #readingislife #booksnotsleep #blackfen

We are celebrating the end of #LibrariesWeek …. Some may think it’s a “novel” idea to celebrate a library, but ‘A library outranks any other one thing a community can do to benefit its people. It is a never-failing spring in the desert.” (Andrew Carnegie). Carnegie believed in the right for FREE libraries so much that between 1883 and 1929, he personally funded over 2,000 Carnegie public libraries throughout the world. (what a dude) Some may feel that with the rise of technology these spaces are no longer needed…. We have Google, Right? Not only has my local library been an essential space for me to grow my business and deliver my passion. Libraries also offer sooo much more: . 1. Libraries are home to the conservation of our learning, our history, and more essentially…our cultural heritage. 2. Libraries are a crucial service for people on low incomes and are one of the only public places which are free for people to visit. Combating isolation, but especially important as the seasons change. People suffering from fuel poverty have a place to go and keep warm. 3. Libraries provide people with access to the internet, books for continued learning and programs designed to upskill people. 4. Libraries are the go too place for people seeking advice and information about other local services. 5. Libraries connect their communities in a way that benefits everyone. . Once a stable service on every high street, I am sure Carnegie and other philanthropists would be disgraced to see the decline and fall of our public libraries. . We are so lucky to have such skilled and passionate people who campaigned to stop our library from closing and want to give a HUGE shout out to all the staff who do a grand job at being grand. #uppernorlibhub has several adaptable spaces for creatives and well-being practitioners to hire and deliver classes. I love running my monthly #soundbath there, but you should seriously check out the pick and mix of classes delivered by other local business and freelancers. Local people delivering classes aimed at babies to elders and anyone in-between…. wellbeing for all delivered on your high st
