Libraries Week 2018 - My time. My space. My library.


Libraries Week takes place between the 8–13 October to celebrate the nation’s much-loved libraries. In 2018, with a focus on wellbeing, libraries across the country, including Buckinghamshire Libraries, will showcase how they bring communities together, combat loneliness, provide a space for reading and creativity and support people with their mental health.

Praise for Kate Hamer

'Thrillers about abducted children are hardly a fresh idea, but Kate Hamer's debut novel may be the most original take on the subject since Ian McEwan's The Child In Time...There is a surreal, fairytale-like quality to this unique and beguiling book.' (Sunday Express)


Libraries Week at Burnham Community Library

There are a host of activities happening at Burnham Community Library for Libraries Week. This Tuesday (9th) from 1pm – 4pm will see the unveiling of a new garden wall mount designed by children from the local grammar school.

There will also be adult colouring sessions and a coffee morning to look forward to, culminating in two nights of drama at the end of the week (12th and 13th), courtesy of the Slough Writers' group.

For details of events throughout the week please pop into the library.

Throughout the week there is also a chance to test your sense of reading adventure by borrowing a book bundle, wrapped up so you don’t know what is inside until you get it home!

Happy reading this Libraries week!
