As part of the Heritage Open Days we are offering tours of our Special Collections and Archives. Our Special Collections and Archives cover topics from popular music (The Beatles and punk rock) and Liverpool culture (The Everyman Theatre and Willy Russell Archives) to the history of fashion (Liddell Hart Collection).
Get a behind the scenes look at our collections and see material never before exhibited. This year we will be featuring collections which are currently being used in teaching and research, such as Femorabilia collection of girls’ comics and women’s magazines.
Our small archive of Cunard ephemera has some new items added by a member of library staff who was on the recent Queen Mary Cunard 175 cruise. It is interesting to compare the menus and daily programmes with those from the 1960s and 70s.
You will also be able to find out information on a major Willy Russell exhibition opening in Knowsley in October and a being Human event, also open to the public, in Central Library on 21st November.
Booking is essential for our Heritage Open Days tours (max 12 people per tour) and they are not suitable for children under the age of 16.
