Libraries week 9-14 October 2017


Libraries Week is a chance to discover the range of things you can do at your library, from play and learning for children, to managing your health, to accessing wifi and games, to finding a job, a hobby or starting a business. 

 

 

All Week
Library charges amnesty: If you’ve got charges on your library account that are putting you off coming back in to use your library then visit any Doncaster Library in Libraries Week to have them cleared, no questions asked. In addition to this you can get a free replacement library card if you need one and borrow DVDs, music CDs and audio books for free all week.
Book sale: Doncaster Central, Edlington and Mexborough Libraries will each be holding a weeklong book sale of withdrawn library stock and donated items.
Information stand: If you’d like to find out more about what happens in Doncaster Libraries and the services we provide then visit our information stand on the ground floor of the Central Library.
