Peter Gaw, chief executive officer at Inspire, said: “Mansfield Central Library was opened by The Queen during her Silver Jubilee in 1977 and is one of the jewels in our crown at Inspire, so I am delighted to welcome the local community to this event to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

"With events also in many other libraries across the county and a virtual exhibition of the Queen’s reign in the Inspire Picture Archive, I am proud of the way my colleagues are celebrating such a momentous occasion.”

Coun John Cottee, cabinet member for Communities at Nottinghamshire County Council, said: “The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee is an historic occasion and where better to celebrate than at one of our wonderful libraries?

“Libraries really are at the heart of local communities, and are the perfect venue for local people to come together to celebrate special occasions.

"It is wonderful to see so many activities to mark the event across Nottinghamshire. I hope that residents and visitors of all ages will be able to take part and enjoy celebrating with an excellent programme of events.”
