Suffolk Libraries Day 2021

Find out our plans for Suffolk Libraries Day 2021, our major fundraising event.

Suffolk Libraries is a charity which makes a difference to residents, families and communities across the county.

We need to raise funds to safeguard our services. Read more about the difference we make.

Suffolk Libraries Day is our biggest annual fundraising event, showcasing and celebrating the impact we make across Suffolk. Nearly 50 Suffolk organisations and businesses supported the first Suffolk Libraries Day in 2019, by making donations or taking part in fundraising events.

We’d love organisations across Suffolk to be a part of the next Suffolk Libraries Day, which takes place on 20 March 2021.

It’ll be a socially distanced this time round, but there are plenty of ways to get involved.

Email suffolklibrariesday@suffolklibraries.co.uk if you’d like your organisation to sponsor us this year.

Book Journey Sponsor

We’ll again be holding our Book Journey event with our lovable owl mascot Oona, going from library to library. Would your organisation be interested in sponsoring her? Or you could provide a form of transport, carrying your logo, to help her on her way.

Online Book Festival

We’ll be holding an online festival where we’ll be interviewing some of the biggest names in the world of literature. Attendance will be free with an optional donation.
