Libraries invite you to celebrate Creativity Month

Libraries NI is delighted to announce a programme of free events to celebrate Creativity Month in libraries during the month of March including a number of events in Derry.

Creativity Month is an initiative of the Department of Culture, Arts and Leisure and is held annually to stimulate new thinking and new collaborations to help creative people, creative ideas and creative businesses to emerge and flourish.

Libraries NI is delighted to be participating in Creativity Month for the third successive year.

On Monday March 11 Bernie McGill will give a short talk on the publication process for The Butterfly Cabinet and invite participants to share their own experiences of traditional, digital and self-publishing. There will be a discussion on different routes into publishing for local writers.

On March 21 a ‘Putting the Past in Print’ event will be held in Central Library at 2p.m.

And on Saturday March 23 at 2 p.m. in Central Library Paddy Nash will host an Open Mic event for all budding musicians.

Irene Knox, Chief Executive of Libraries NI, adds:“I hope that Libraries NI’s plans will give large numbers of the public, whether library members or not, the opportunity to participate in what promises to be an exciting and varied programme of free events. Libraries offer so much more than books. If you haven’t been to a library for some time, why not take the opportunity during Creativity Month to visit and see for yourself.”
