Today is an exciting day. Today I am announcing something very wonderful.
This month, Jess (@ReadByJess) is hosting a month-long celebration of libraries called ‘Library Loves’ and she has invited me to be a co-host. How bloody wonderful is that?!
Why do we need Library Loves?
The whole aimis to encourage people to support their library by visiting, checking out books, and raising awareness of how much libraries can do for individuals and the community. Whether you’re visiting a local library, or (like me) visiting your school library to check out books, we’d love to know all about it! It’s so lush to share books and as a teacher it’s so important that my kids see me checking out books too!
If you’d like to know more, you can check out Jess’s intro video for everything you need to know about the month.
AN IMPORTANT DATE: Saturday 12th October will be Library Day.
If you’re able to, we’d love for you to join us in visiting your local library on 12th and spread the bookish love.
There will be five challenges that you can take part in on Library Day if you’d like:
- Visit a library (in person or digitally)
- Encourage a friend to use the library
- Check out a book
- Produce content related to Library Loves (so a blog post, a YouTube video, tweets, Instagram photos – pretty much anything you can think of)
- Read a library book
Head to your local library on Library Day and try to complete as many of the challenges as possible – I know I will be! There’ll also be a lot of library content (whether it’s about my local library or our school library) posted throughout October on this blog!
If that’s not enough Library Loves content for you, I’ll be joined by some wonderful cohosts! You should definitely check out their blogs and see what they’re posting!

We’ll be using the hashtag #LibraryLoves across social media, so if you want to join us throughout October, don’t forget to use the hashtag on your posts so we can see them!
