The lockdown has seen a massive surge of interest in public library joining figures and in e-lending.  The National Shelf Service is intended as means to help to promote books and reading, to showcase the expertise and knowledge of librarians and also to help parents, carers, teachers and young people themselves connect with some truly incredible reads!  


We are delighted that on World Book Night we will be hosting a special day of activity.  From 11.00am until 7.00pm we will have recommendations on the hour each one themed in some way around books, reading, stories and libraries!  At 7.00pm we will have a special online storytime with award-winning children's poet and author Joseph Coelho followed by a short talk with him about why libraries have meant so much to him as well as his exciting membership tour of libraries around the UK!


The final recommendation of the day will happen at 8.00pm.  Throughout the day we will also be on Twitter giving book recommendations using the Twitter handle #DrBook do join us and help to make World Book Night a special celebration of books, reading, stories and libraries!
