This will be the 20th World Book Day, and we are very excited to see what characters will appear in our libraries during the week.


Thanks to Joe’s Ice Cream, Wellfield Road, we’ll even have special vouchers for the best fancy dress!

What else is on at your local Hub?

Did you know that the libraries in your local Hubs host loads of events for you and your family?

From stories to crafts, to treasure hunts to a combination of all of these things – there is something for everyone.

On World Book Day, hunt for your favourite story book characters to win prizes, and join us for a very silly story time.

Recently, we have celebrated National Libraries Day, and filled half term with play, crafts, stories, gardening and mini golf in partnership with ECLP Communities First, SportCardiff, RSPB, and Cardiff Council Play Services (the Barn).
