The Culture and Creativity Universal Library Offer seeks to support the work of libraries in enriching the lives of children and adults by providing arts and cultural experiences in local settings. This can happen through the everyday work of libraries but also when libraries engage with, and support, national events, using them as opportunities to spark curiosity, imagination and fun. 'Making the Most of National Events' is a toolkit designed to support library services in benefiting from national events that take place – whether these be annual events, sporting events, awareness days and weeks or national celebrations. We have drawn together the experience and expertise of members of the Culture and Creativity Offer Group supported by Libraries Connected to share ideas and resources. Whether your budget is large or small, you can get involved!
These resources are designed to help libraries at all stages of the planning and production process, from risk assessment to gathering audience feedback. They can be downloaded individually below.
