We’re excited to announce that the Linen Hall Readathon is returning on Friday 4 November from 10am – 5pm to kick off another month-long fundraising drive.

The first Readathon took place in November 2015, and at the end of the month over £4,000 was raised.

To participate, just show up, pay £5 and read anything you like for fifteen minutes on the pop-up stage located in the General Reception area on Level 2. Or you can book your slot by contacting the Library on 028 9032 1707 or emailing Deborah Douglas on

Donation buckets will be placed around the Library throughout the month and volunteers with boxes will be walking the floors spreading the fundraising word.

If you can’t make the date you can still donate! Go to and click on ‘Donate’ at the bottom of the page to pay using PayPal or credit/debit card. Or donate in person at our General Services Desk on level 2 in the Library. Don’t forget to Gift Aid!
