Northumberland County Council is encouraging people to join their local library this month.
A library card gives access to books, ebooks, resources and events for toddlers, teens and adults - and it’s free!
Libraries are also a great place to meet like-minded people – whether you’re interested in family and local history, crafts or meeting authors.
Councillor Val Tyler, policy board member for community infrastructure and culture, said: ““Our libraries in Northumberland have so much more on offer than books and we want to share that with as many people as possible.
“It’s free to become a member and quick and easy to join so why not give it a go. You will be really surprised at what you find.”
There are 34 library buildings in Northumberland and three mobile library vans covering 60 routes across the county. Find out more at www.mylibrary.co.uk.
