LILLINGTON Library has been celebrating turning 100.

The library has been serving the local community for a century – opening its doors in 1922.

And to mark the landmark occasion, a week-long programme of fun activities and events was laid on for local people of all ages.

There was a rhyme time session and ‘Story Stomp’ for youngsters, creative crafts including a chance to make rag wreath decorations for Christmas, ‘A Look at Lillington’ local history talk by Peter Coulls and Margaret Rushton from the Lillington Local History Society and an open day with an exhibition of photos and memories of Lillington Library.

The week was rounded off with a speech and cake cutting by Warwickshire County Councillor Sarah Boad.

WCC customer and transformation spokesman, Coun Andy Jenns, said: “I would like to congratulate the Warwickshire Libraries team on reaching this special centenary milestone at Lillington Library. Having recently visited to talk with staff about the history of the building, it’s clear they will continue to go above and beyond with great enthusiasm to provide resources, activities, and events that cater to all ages and interests at libraries across the county.

“Libraries are safe, warm, and inclusive spaces that provide a great range of free resources, knowledge, and services to support their local communities. As Lillington Library looks forward to the next 100 years, our friendly staff will continue to look for even more ways to offer great benefits to our library members.”
