As residents celebrate Book Week NI 2023 (October 16-October 22), we took a look back through the Newtownabbey Times archive at some of the events held at libraries across the borough over the years.
Whether you use your local library to access books and resources, attend job fairs, classes such as Rhythm and Rhyme, or knitting groups, libraries play a vital role in the community.
Check out these photographs from over the years.
Hopefully they bring back some happy memories.
