THINGS TO DO: Celebrate Library Lovers Day

09 February 2019

Looking for something a little different to do this Valentines Day?

Sunshine Coast Libraries is celebrating February 14 with Library Lovers Day, offering free live music at all libraries and free morning refreshments.

Community Programs Portfolio Councillor Jenny McKay said libraries were the best match-makers – they’ll help you find the information, book, program, author or just about anything else you’re looking for.

“People really do love their local library. It’s a great place to unwind, catchup on the latest news, learn more about technology or meet up with friends,” Cr McKay said.

“Libraries also host a range of exciting events that showcase national and international authors and speakers.

“This year’s Library Lovers Day is all about connecting and honouring the relationship between libraries and like-minded community members.

“There will be live music in the morning from a line-up of exceptionally talented Sunshine Coast musicians including Hayden Hack, Pepper Jane, Jai Bevan, Ollie Murk, Rachel Ellen, Nyssa Ray, Lauren Hutton and Rodger Bradshaw.

“It’s all free and no registration is required, so come along and enjoy the celebrations.”

Library Lover’s Day is a great time to join the library. There are more than 1300 new members joining the service each month.

Members are borrowing, downloading and streaming books, films, magazines and music.

You can borrow and return items at any of our eight libraries and two mobile libraries across the region.

Sunshine Coast Libraries have more than 385,000 items in their collection available for library card holders to borrow for free.

In 2018 more than 2.3 million items were borrowed from Sunshine Coast Libraries.
