Libraries are unique institutions with a special place at the heart of their local communities. The Week is a tremendous opportunity to strengthen links with your diverse local community; educate and inform; and to highlight aspects of your collection.

At this time of COVID-19 and social distancing, the Week will have a strong virtual component.  Libraries are particularly well placed to take advantage of this.  Just a few ideas that you may be interested to consider:

  • An online talk or display about books on religion and belief in your collection
  • A video of some local faith community members talking about why libraries are so important to local communities and what their faith has to say about the importance of learning 
  • A curated reading list linked to the Week – perhaps utilising ebooks where necessary
  • A video about how you serve local communities in our religiously diverse society
  • An online story telling session for children with readers from different faiths and beliefs
  • A specially curated mini exhibition about different faiths and beliefs – perhaps in association with your local inter faith group (you can find groups listed at with an online version of this
  • A live streamed or recorded multi faith music session (without singing) in one of the spaces of your library
