Book time to cel­e­brate

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your Telegraph -

RES­I­DENTS are in­vited to en­joy a slice of birth­day cake at a li­brary to­mor­row.

Hunt­ing­don Li­brary will mark its first birth­day with a spe­cial party dur­ing its open­ing hours to­mor­row.

Since its open­ing last year, the li­brary has wel­comed 258,000 vis­i­tors, is­sued 265,000 books and re­ceived 4,200 new mem­bers.

Its new RFID elec­tronic li­brary fa­cili- ties are also used by over 90 per cent of the li­brary’s users.

Cam­bridgeshire County Councillor Sir Peter Brown, cabi­net mem­ber for com­mu­ni­ties, said: “Through its ex­cel­lent part­ner­ships and in-house ini­tia­tives, Hunt­ing­don Li­brary is a per­fect il­lus­tra­tion of a li­brary which of­fers a first-class ser­vice from the cra­dle to the grave.”
