Executive councillor for culture and leisure Andrew McGuire said: "Our local libraries offer so much for local residents these days, and our open day on Thursday 24 February is great chance to find out more.
"In addition to stocking all the bestsellers, you can also go online for free, attend a club, take the kids along for a Bookbug session and so much more.
"The service provided by libraries doesn't just stop at the door; you can also use our new cloudLibrary app to manage your borrowings on the go, access free ebooks, etalkingbooks and magazines, and vulnerable residents can get books delivered via the Food Train using our Homebound service.
"The best resource of all is usually the helpful and well-informed library staff, who are great at signposting you to all the services on offer. Head along to your local library on 24 February to see all the interesting and fun things it has to offer you."
All West Lothian libraries will have special displays showcasing special services on offer, including: the Playlist for life, an initiative that supports music to prompt memories; the Bookbug library challenge to encourage children from birth to seven to read; and Kindness trees, your opportunity to tell us what libraries mean to you.
You can also find information on the new cloudLibrary app, which can be downloaded on phones and tablets from your Appstore. More details at Books and Reading
