Look out for our #MiniLibraries! (#MiniLibraryNetwork)

We’ve launched a Mini Library Network as part of the 2017 festival build up. 3 venues around Leicester will have one of our mini bookshelves – we’ve chosen venues that don’t generally have a range of books easily accessible so that as many people as possible can access reading material.

Our first mini library was launched on Saturday 1st July in the Town Hall Square. The bookcase will live in the Methodist Church Chapel Cafe on Bishop Street until the end of the festival. #MiniLibrary number 2 was launched on Saturday 2nd September in the Leicester Cathedral. Make sure you pop by and see them, our books are free to take, borrow, swap and you could even leave one that you’ve loved and want someone else to experience.

See some images below from the 2 Mini Library launches so far.

The Festival

Everybody’s Reading is a festival of all things reading, taking place across Leicester city in schools, libraries and venues, ranging from bars, cafes, pubs, and coffee shops.

Everybody’s Reading is dedicated to encouraging every person in Leicester to hear spoken word artists, poets, authors and community writers in their local community venues and offers funding to help make this happen. With a large variety of genres catered to, it is guaranteed there is something for everyone to enjoy from anywhere in the city
