Why libraries matter

2nd July 2024

Word Live In Libraries was our third tour showcasing writers at 20 libraries across the South West of England. We were delighted to be the delivery partner once again working with SWRLS (the South Western Regional Library Service).You can learn more about the project and watch a short retrospective film on the project page here.

Everywhere we went, we kept hearing how important each library was to its community. So to celebrate the completion of the tour, we asked some of the authors involved ‘Why do libraries matter?’ and created a suite of posters from their answers. We’ve been sharing these with project partners and authors this week and thought you’d like a look too!

Librarians, you are welcome to download these as a PDF to display in your library – just click the link below.

Word Live In Libraries was supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
