National Libraries Day

It’s National Libraries Day next Saturday, February 8, and libraries across Herts will be holding events including special competitions.

Anyone who borrows a book on the day will be entered into a prize draw to win one of three Nook Simple Touch e-readers which are fully compatible for library e-services.

As well as the prize draw, library users can also take part in a quiz in which they will have to match a quote about libraries to a well-known person. The winner of this quiz will also win a Nook Simple Touch e-reader.

“As well as the competitions, many of the libraries county-wide are hosting some exciting special events on the day.

“Why not just drop into your local library and join in?”
