Newcastle City Library's First Birthday Card
Please check out our other events at Newcastle City Library or 'Special Events' events
Newcastle-based artist Bethan Laker, who has created a giant first birthday card for the City Library, will lead a public workshop in City Library’s atrium. You will be invited to write comments, birthday wishes or draw pictures of the library and say what it means to you – talk about your favourite parts of the building or some of the events you have attended.
The finished birthday card will also feature some of the library’s highlights over its first year including the official opening by Her Majesty The Queen last November, Quest Seekers, The Fantastic Mr Fox City Read, Flights of Fancy and The Memory Bank as well as comments from staff, VIP guests and those involved in its construction including Tolent, Ryder and Kajima.
Once all the comments and pictures have been collected a selection will be added to the card, which will be unveiled at the library on its 1st birthday on Monday 7 June at 11am. You can also share a special birthday cake courtesy of Stewart and Co from the City Library’s cafe.
