Dudley Libraries staff book place in national awards final

books1Shhhhhhhhhhhhh! We know we should keep our voices down in the library  – but honestly, we want to shout about our staff from the rooftops!

That’s because the lovely team has been shortlisted for a prestigious national award.

For the third year in a row, our Dudley Borough libraries team is in the final of the national Bookseller Industry Awards 2015.

The Library of the Year category is all about finding the best library in Britain, and highlighting the fabulous work of the individual librarians who help encourage so many people to visit them each year.

Libraries play a vital role in encouraging reading, and our local libraries have seen increasing visitor numbers week on week thanks to the many initiatives introduced by our staff.

The winner will be announced in May – so fingers crossed everyone (it’s ok, you can uncross them to turn the page …)
