What stories do public libraries hold, beyond those on the shelves? Though in-depth interviews with people who use, work in, and run public libraries – including Storyhouse – we’ve been finding out what libraries mean to people, how libraries are changing, and what public libraries of the future might look like.

Join Professor Shelley Trower and Dr Sarah Pyke from the Living Libraries project team for a public talk and to share your memories and experiences of public libraries. The talk will be at 6pm; you’re invited to join us in the Garret Bar from 5.30pm
