Libraries and communities: your ideas on what next?

libraries.png

What are your information needs

How can the library service change to meet your needs

Have you got ideas or suggestions for your library and its building? Can you help make these ideas happen? We are inviting you to come along to one of our community events running from January, which will bring local people and organisations together to look for opportunities for community-led activities and partnerships to create a library service for the future. This is everyone’s opportunity to work together to pilot new ideas.

The library service is greatly valued but it needs to change to be more relevant to the neighbourhood and local people. We need to work together to create a library service which will serve future generations and be well connected to everything else that’s going on in the local area.

This is your chance to be part of it – just come along with your ideas.

The following events are taking place – the libraries being discussed at each event are detailed in the listing – please book on to the relevant one for the library you are interested in.

Three Kings  - A play in half term by Travelling Light theatre company

Three Kings - A play in half term by Travelling Light theatre company

Three weary travellers from far off lands meet by chance as night approaches, all looking to the darkening skies. As shadows draw in, they eventually overcome their suspicions of each other and exchange stories; stories of love, stories of loss, stories of kings.

Where have they come from and where are they going and what is so special about this night? How many stars are there in the sky, is there such a thing as chance or do the constellations have a plan mapped out for each and every one of us?

Travelling Light brings it’s inventive and fresh twist to a classic tale. Three Kings fuses storytelling, song and dance and puppetry in a sparkling show about finding out where you belong, overcoming your differences and listening to the secret stargazer in each of us.

Length: 50 - 55 minutes

Recommeneded for Year 1 - 6

Price: Free but booking essential

Contact The Hub, Lockleaze 0117 914 1129 or info@lockleazent.co.uk
