HELLO!

A KIND OF MAGIC!

Here at Hull Libraries we believe that books and stories contain a kind of magic – the power to take you away to another place, to introduce you to extraordinary people, animals or times, or things beyond your own world and your own imagination. And not just books - in a library you can find music, dance, games and all kinds of creative activity to transform your world. And people to meet who enjoy the same things - what could be more magical than that? Come and explore with us!
