Living Libraries

Falmouth Library is one of only 5 in the country that has been nominated to be a partner in the Living Libraries project run by Roehampton University. The aim of the project is to create an oral history archive on public libraries, with a particular focus on recent and ongoing changes in library provision. The interviews, public talks, installations and performances will then feed into a 15-20 minute audio documentary. Falmouth Library was nominated as it was the first of Cornwall’s Libraries to devolve to a Town Council in November 2016 and the project focuses on select libraries which have radically changed over the past decade – looking at some of the most innovative as well as the most challenging cases. You can learn more about the project and hear what they have recorded and created so far on the Living Libraries website:
