Libraries are fabulous institutions that deserve our love every day of the year, obviously. However, every 14th of February is Library Lover's Day, and it's your chance to show your local library just how much you appreciate them.
If you’re a bibliophile, a bookworm, a book lover, a book aficionado, a person who likes to stare at ink stains on slices of dead trees for hours and hallucinate, whatever you like to call yourself… you know all about the reading life, right?

Lovers of Jane Austen’s beautiful novels are ordinarily happy and sociable – just think of the annual Regency-themed teas and festivals, and the gatherings of smiling people in Georgian period clothing.
