Reading Birmingham's past in the history of the library

Saturday 16 March, 2pm at Birmingham Library Theatre

Guidance: The lecture is aimed at adults but all are welcome

General, History and Nostalgia



Join Senior Archivist Rachel MacGregor for an afternoon lecture focusing on how the history of Birmingham libraries reflects the history of Birmingham.
As one library closes and a new one opens we look back at Birmingham and its libraries over the past 150 years. We trace the books, the people and the stories that weave the two together, leafing through the pages of Birmingham's history.
Booking is not necessary and entry is free to members of FOBAH. 
For non-members, tickets are £2.
