Love Your Library Day

Love Your Library day is back! And STEAMing!

On February 15th, libraries across Essex will be getting into the spirit of Essex 2020 by showcasing Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics (STEAM).


When was the last time you visited your local library? These important and vibrant community hubs are for so much more than borrowing books!

In December library users enjoyed a wonderful variety of activities. They showed their Love for Libraries by getting involved in story times, craft activities, quizzes, board games and coffee mornings.

For the February Love Your Library day 74 Essex libraries are celebrating Essex 2020 by showcasing library events and services that relate to Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics (STEAM).

So, get ready to experiment, create, game, program and more. Because on February 15th every library in Essex will be celebrating STEAM.

Find out which FREE Love Your Library event is happening in your library and help us inspire the scientists, engineers and artists of the future.
