A message from Sue Lawson:
We’re pleased to announce that the National Public Libraries Festival – our first celebration of all-things public library – has launched a call for funding over at Crowdfunder.
The first ever national public libraries festival will be a day long celebration of the creativity and innovation happening in public libraries. The one-day public libraries festival, set to coincide with the fiftieth anniversary of the 1964 Public Libraries and Museums Act, will bring together an exciting programme of interactive workshops, engaging discussions, fun events, live music and theatre and much more.
We aim to:
- attract a new audience into the library and inspire them to become library users
- confound perceptions of libraries as places of limited appeal or outdated institutions with limited lifespans
- inspire library staff and drive change in the ways libraries are presented to the non-using public
- focus on exciting future possibilities
