Central Library reopening day- Monday 9 July

Join us as we celebrate the reopening of Central Library. We've got a day of activities planned - we hope to see you there!


9.30am Opening Ceremony
Join us outside Central Library for our reopening ceremony. Free balloons for the children. Once we move inside we’ll have a cake-cutting ceremony. We’ll announce the winner of our Design a Library Bag competition and giving away 200 bags each day this week. Some of the bags will have surprises in them!

10.30am Storytime – Level 2
Join our guests for a special Storytime in the children’s area. We’ve got a little something for every child who comes dressed as their favourite storybook character. There will also be the chance to win a family pass to The Cat in the Hat stage show at Claudelands.

11.30am Mr Roberelli (Children’s Entertainment Group)
Enjoy a fun performance by Mr Roberelli. Stick around and you could be in their new music video which they will be filming in and around the library.

In the afternoon join us for our School Holiday Programme, including a Scavenger Hunt, Tech Zone and LEGO Club. You can also sign up for our Winter Reading Programme.

On Level 3 we’ll have our new exhibition: ‘Heritage – The Exhibition: A behind the scenes look at the work of our Heritage Team’.

And don’t forget to check out our fun selfie frame and add your thoughts to our ‘Love your Libraries’ wall!
