Lezley Picton, Shropshire Council’s Cabinet member for culture and leisure, said:
“We are all familiar with our idea of a library, but this week gives us an opportunity to discover what modern library services offer and the impact they have on our lives. Libraries need our support, so take the time to visit your local library this week to be surprised by the changes.”
