ORMBY Library is set to host a variety of exciting events over the coming weeks.
During the week commencing September 11 you are invited to take part in The Travelling Letter Exchange – a touring letter writing bureau designed by artist Laura Jamieson.
Drop in to the library to sit down, write a letter and create a new archive of letters that shows what it is like to live in the north west in 2017.
Everyone who writes a letter will receive a letter in return from another participant.
A selection of the letters will be published in e-book in early 2018.
The bureau is a contemporary specially commissioned piece of furniture inspired by what Jane Austen could have used.
The project is funded by the Arts Council England ‘Grants for the Arts’ lottery-funded programme and Time to Read.
On Tuesday, September 12, come and meet local author David McCabe at 2pm as he talks about his latest book Brendan Ashore, which is the third book in his Irish Lad series.
