Are you a library member?

If not, why not? There are so many reasons to become one and, with more and more people visiting Norfolk libraries a lot of people agree!

Throughout January Norfolk Library and Information Service is promoting all the benefits of becoming a library member with a month-long

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

was launched recently, allowing 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.

To coincide with Join-Up January, the library service is launching its own Facebook page with information on what the library can offer you, news

about promotions and events at libraries, and book news. Log onto www.norfolk.gov.uk/libraries to find out more about this.

It's completely free to join the library and really 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

· learn how to use the internet if you're over 60 with Surf's Up classes

· access information from your local councils and other organisations
