This Saturday was National Libraries Day. Established two years ago, it is a day to celebrate our libraries and the work of librarians. I was delighted to be joined by the Libraries Minister, Ed Vaizey, at Deal Library to mark the day.
Our Libraries are valuable public resources, promoting both learning and leisure. They have played a vital role in our communities for over a century, celebrating our culture and our literature. In Kent, there are 99 libraries and the county has kept all its libraries since 2010. It is great that Deal Library was recently refurbished and I enjoyed visiting again.
