National Libraries Day to be celebrated on the Isle of Wight

Individuals heading on an Isle of Wight holiday this month might like to brush up on the classics and take a trip to one of the island's many libraries, as February 9th is set to be National Libraries Day.

An array of events are to take place at the many libraries across the Isle of Wight, including a celebration of the 200th anniversary of the release of Jane Austen's Pride & Prejudice at the Lord Louis Library in Newport.

Ryde Library will be holding a day of tea and treats for visitors, while Freshwater Library will be showcasing the many online services people can enjoy - such as access to tapes and books on learning a new language free of charge.

Meanwhile, visitors hoping to enjoy a spot of culture this weekend might also like to head along to The West Wight Arts Association concert showcasing up-and-coming vocal talent from the island, which is also being held on February 9th.

The Isle of Wight County Press reports rising star soprano Susanna Hurrell will be performing on the night, while a number of acclaimed musicians will be joining her on stage.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801534410-ADNFCR
