Explore the libraries inside your Library
Libraries mean different things to different people.
Libraries are changing with the times, but in essence they remain what they have always been: sources of knowledge, inspiration and imagination for everyone. During national Library & Information Week from May 25-31, why not celebrate them by reading about them?
Even when you can’t browse at your actual library, you can still go to one in your imagination! Borrow one of the titles below – access ebooks online or make a reservation for a print copy:
Search the Catalogue for even more libraries in the Library!
