You’ll hear from Dr Oriel Prizeman from Cardiff University who is running an international research project looking at how Carnegie libraries around the world are being re-purposed for modern use. We’ll also be joined by Vanessa Oakden from the Museum of Liverpool who led an archaeological dig at The Old Library back in June. She’ll be sharing some of the things we discovered and what we now know about how the area has changed over the last few centuries.
Our fabulous research volunteers will also be sharing what they’ve learnt over the last 12 months, looking at case studies of interesting people who’ve lived and worked in L13, as well as how children have enjoyed, as well as worked in, libraries across Liverpool in the past.
The event kicks off at 6.30pm at St Cecilia’s Club on Green Lane, L13 7DT. Tickets can be purchased in advance from Lister Steps (L13 7HH) for £2 or on the door for £3. For more information, contact Olivia on firstname.lastname@example.org or 07988 778372.
