will be celebrated in schools, colleges, universities, workplaces and public libraries across the UK on Saturday 9 February.

The best way to take part is by visiting your local library. With services under threat of closure in some areas, this is a good opportunity to see what's on offer at your nearest branch.

As well as lending out hardbacks, paperbacks, DVD's and e-books, most public libraries provide newspapers and magazines and access to PC's which may be used for research or job applications.

Many branches also offer other valuable community services, such as book clubs, rhyme time for toddlers or homework clubs for school children.

If you can't get to a local branch in person, most libraries have some form of online services. You can join in the discussion about the future of libraries by tweeting using the hashtag #NLD13 or by contributing to the Community forum.

A programme of events celebrating Britain's libraries starts on 4 February and ends on 9 February with National Libraries Day. Further information from www.nationallibrariesday.org.uk
