Geoffrey Bowden, chairman of the council's culture committee, said: “We are committed to ensuring that our libraries are at the heart of our communities.
“That's why we've created something of interest to all age groups - literally from babies to grown-ups.
“We'll also be encouraging people to discover the wonders of the web, showing people our new free e-books service and generally telling people what useful and inspirational places our are libraries are.”
