DEC 11 Are you a library member?
It’s really easy to join Norfolk Libraries and once a member you can
discover all that’s on offer. From serious reads and ebooks to
children’s events and new release DVDs, there’s something for
Throughout January, Norfolk Library and Information Service is
promoting all the benefits of becoming a library member with a monthlong
promotion called 'Join-Up January'. There are county council-run
library buildings and mobile libraries across Norfolk, which means
there is likely to be one fairly close to where you live, and there's so
much more to them than a place to borrow books.
Did you know you can also borrow console games, DVDs and CDs
at reasonable rates and return them to any library? An ebooks service
allows you to download and borrow ebooks for free from the comfort
of your own home. And there are always events, activities and clubs
for both children and adults going on in libraries.
It's completely free to join the library and quick and easy. You can
do it online at www.norfolk.gov.uk/libraries or drop into your local
library and staff will take down your details and get you and up and
running in just a couple of minutes.
With libraries it's free to:
· borrow books and magazines
· use public PCs
· borrow ebooks from your own home
· attend lots of events including children's activities and author visits
·access information from your local councils and other organisations

Hunstanton Town Read - One Book, One Town
Starts Saturday 7th January 10am
Hunstanton Library is on a mission to see how many members of the
local community they can encourage to read and share the same book
at the same time - the chosen book is The Thirteenth Tale by Diane
Setterfield. It's a compelling and emotional mystery in the timeless
vein of Daphne du Maurier's 'Rebecca', about family secrets and the
magic of books and storytelling.
Reclusive author Vida Winter, famous for her collection of twelve
enchanting stories, has spent the past six decades penning a series of
alternate lives for herself. Now old and ailing, she is ready to reveal
the truth about her extraordinary existence and the violent and tragic
past she has kept secret for so long. Calling on Margaret Lea, a young
biographer troubled by her own painful history, Vida disinters the life
she meant to bury for good.
