National Libraries Day: Top crime writer Ann Cleeves and a host of writers and artists will join local library communities for a week of special activities to mark National Libraries Day, Saturday 6 February. Now in its fifth year, the annual celebration highlights the importance of libraries as vitally important public services which are loved by individuals and communities everywhere.

Ann is an award-winning crime writer and creator of hit TV series Shetland and Vera. Her GALAXY® Quick Reads, Too Good To Be True, will be published on 4 February and has been selected as one of the 2016 World Book Night titles. She said:

"Libraries matter. If we believe in equality of opportunity we must fight not just for the buildings but for the range of books inside and the skilled staff who can promote reading in all its forms. Not only do libraries encourage us to be more tolerant and better informed, they contribute enormously to the wealth of the nation.

"If you're not a member join on National Libraries Day. It's easy and it's free. If you are, go along and choose a title that you might not otherwise have picked. Share the excitement of everyone who's greedy for reading. Help us to celebrate this wonderful institution."
