She Made the Library: Exhibition Launch
17th August, 2017 at 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
The final exhibition in GWL’s 25th year is a photographic portrait of women who helped to create the Library, and is a powerful and fascinating record of the growth of a unique organisation through collaborative working.
She Made the Library: Exhibition Launch, Thursday 17th August, 6pm to 7.30pm
This exhibition evokes a recognition of the thousands of women who have created GWL and how important it is to record cultural and political contributions.
This exhibition launch will be an opportunity to meet, mingle and reminisce about the historical highlights of the Library or discover more about how this resource has grown from the grassroots to a Recognised Collection of National Significance.
We will be toasting the journey vividly illustrated in the exhibition and we also welcome your active involvement to help us put you in the picture. Bring memories, photos and comments to add if you can.
#GWL25: How you can help us remember
We are active each day at GWL making sure women and their histories are remembered. This year we have been taking time to remember and record our own. We need your help in naming and honouring the women who have been involved in our history. If you’re not able to come to this exhibition, get in touch or tweet us at #GWL25 with your nuggets of recollections and help us in our efforts to provide the bigger picture of the history of GWL.
