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.
