Our good friend Cathy Donnelly has asked to share this letter promoting BookWeek NI and help by recounting your fondest memories of our treasured public library in Market Street.
Dear Madam/ Sir
I would like to ask that the members of Armagh Theatre Group help staff at Armagh City Library to celebrate Book Week NI, 18th-24th October 2021.
Book Week NI is a key event in our calendar for promoting all that libraries do and the services they provide. As part of this year’s initiative we will have a ‘Love Your Library Day’ on Wednesday 20th October, where we hope to get members of the public tell us why they Love Armagh City Library; we will create a number of displays based on this.
We would be delighted if members of the Armagh Theatre Group could contribute to this day by letting us know why they Love Their Library – an ‘I Love My Library Because…’ postcard is attached.
We are also collecting memories of Armagh – the people, the town and the county – for our celebration of Life Stories for Book Week NI on Monday 18th October.
We would appreciate it if your members could take a few minutes to tell us about memorable, interesting and even just everyday memories they have of Armagh through the years.
We would also be grateful if they could tell us of any memories they have of Armagh City Library – maybe about how it has changed over time or the role it has played for them at the different stages of their lives. Please see the attached document which can be used to jot down any memories.
I could collect completed sheets next week at a time that is convenient to you or your members are very welcome to drop them in with us at the library.. We would use these contributions to create a dedicated section on our display for Armagh Theatre Group – we could also include pictures of performances by your members as part of this.
