Get Creative with libraries

The Get Creative Festival is a huge celebration of everything creative, taking place across the UK and Ireland from 11 to 19 May 2019. We have a lot of activities in libraries next week that will help you develop your crafty side. 

See what's happening

But all year round there's nowhere better than your local library to help you develop your crafty skills. 


You'll find hundreds of titles on our online catalogue, from knitting, crochet, embroidery and cross stitch to drawing, painting, sewing and creative writing. Whatever your interest or skill level you'should find something to inspire you. 

We also have lots of creative titles available as eBooks


If you prefer magazines, you're in luck. Your Plymouth Library card allows you to download digital versions of magazines to your computer, tablet or smartphone. Crafty titles include Amateur Photographer, Simply Crochet and Simply Knitting


If you want some company while you craft, come along to one of regular sessions. Bring along whatever you're working on, whether it's knitting, crochet, embroidery or something else and enjoy a chat while you craft.
