Local History at the Library – come to our next talk

20 Feb

The Friends of Ecclesfield Library would like to invite you to their next talk – on Wednesday 25 February, 7.30pm at Ecclesfield Library.

“A Walk through Local History” – an introduction to the delights and challenges of examining our past.

An illustrated talk by Christine Handley – who is the coordinator of the recently-formed Ecclesfield Civic Past and Present Archiving Project.

No charge. Donations for refreshments.

This exciting new Project will create an on-line easily-accessible collection of materials about the history of the Ecclesfield Civil Parish area. And they at the Library feel it would be great to be part of this.

Several readers have mentioned that their families have lots of photos, letters and other family/Ecclesfield information. Some have even brought in their precious items to show us.

They very much hope that Ecclesfield Library – which is run for and by the community – will be a close partner with this Project.

There will be great potential for taking part in:

gathering material for the archives;
hosting training courses to develop skills in all aspects of archiving, and in interviewing and recording memories;
supporting young and older people to enable them to interview and record residents talking about their life experiences in the local area; hosting family workshops, drop-in activities, exhibitions and displays;
gathering material for the Library’s proposed VE Day celebrations later in the year; and lots more.
