Sheffield MP celebrates National Libraries Day

Have your say

Sheffield MP Louise Haigh visited Greenhill Library to join in celebrations and meet volunteers as part of National Libraries Day.

National Libraries Day was introduced to celebrate libraries – with over 280 million visits to libraries made between 2013 and 2014.

Ms Haigh said: “It is always great to meet people who give up their spare time for their community.

“Libraries play an important role for everyone and offer a huge amount to our local area, whether its books, learning, access to computers or the huge range of activities that often take place there. I regularly hold surgeries in the libraries in my constituency, which are based in the heart of our communities.

“Local Libraries are as important today as they ever were. It was fantastic to see all the hard work volunteers put in to Greenhill Library.”
