Libraries to join coronation celebrations with commemorative gift giveaway

Staffordshire libraries will be giving away a specially created celebration bookmark and pack of wildflower seeds to customers as part of their celebrations for the King’s Coronation.

The bookmarks and seeds are free and will be available for collection from all Staffordshire Libraries and mobile libraries from Friday 5 May, whilst stocks last.

The project is being funded by Arts Council England who chose wildflower seeds to tie in with the coronation theme of sustainability and biodiversity.

Library staff want people to plant their seeds and then share photos of the growing flowers on social media.

Staffordshire County Councillor, Simon Tagg said: “The King’s Coronation will be a truly historic event and We want people to be able to join in the celebrations.

“It’s great news that our libraries are joining in with their free bookmark and wildflower giveaway. While the bookmark can be put away or saved as a souvenir, staff want people to plant the seeds and then share the photos of the flowers as they grow.

“The coronation will be a wonderful opportunity to come together with friends, family, and your local community to be part of history. There’s so much taking place and I do hope that people are able to join the occasion.”

During May, libraries are also celebrating Green Libraries Month with a range of educational and fun activities and events. People can find out more at Staffordshire Connects | Service listings
