Norfolk's Great Big Read

This post is part-reproduced from Norfolk County Council's own website advertising the Great Big Read.

Selfies, blog posts and film clips are just a few of the ways people can share their favourite book with others as part of Norfolk’s Great Big Read.  Norfolk’s Library and Information Service is inviting people to take a selfie with their favourite book, write book reviews and send them to the Norfolk Loves Books blog.

Every County Council library in Norfolk is taking part in the campaign, which ends on Saturday 25 April, and is aimed at getting everybody to borrow a book, read it and share a love of reading.

The Norfolk Loves Books blog will be a one-stop shop for information throughout Norfolk's Great Big Read. It will include details of Community Reads arranged to encourage as many members of local communities as possible to read the same book and share their thoughts on it.

A number of Shared Reading sessions, aimed at bringing people together to share stories and poems and discuss them in a friendly group setting, will also be held at libraries around the county.

World Book Night on 23 April will bring the event to a close with a Murder Mystery evening at the Norfolk & Norwich Millennium Library from 6pm to 7.30pm. For more information email

It’s free to join the library and free to borrow books, ebooks and magazines. DVDs, console games and CDs can also be borrowed at reasonable prices. For more information about library services, how to join and events, ask at your local library or visit or or
