On this day in 1966, the Beatles’ “Paperback Writer” single goes to #1 and stays at #1 for 2 weeks, and on the same day one year later, in 1967, 400 million viewer’s tuned in to watch the Beatles on the first live, international, satellite television production, “Our World.”
I think it’s safe to say that we’ve all heard a Beatles song once or twice before, and I’m sure we can name each member of the group – I’ve always been partial to Paul myself. But what else do you know? Whether you’re a fan, or just interested in learning more about the Fab Four, the library has what you’re looking for!
Check out some of the books that we have to offer, or if you really want to play like a Beatle, why not borrow the latest DVD collection and learn the songs that made the Beatles famous.

During reading week why not relax, unwind, and take a Magical Mystery Tour to Abbey Road with Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club.
