On Friday April 7th between 2:00 and 3:30pm at Lowdham Methodist Chapel, Main Street, Lowdham, Judith Wright will talk about Boots Booklovers Library.
Booklovers Libraries could be found inside Boots stores across the country for over 65 years. They offered customers a wide choice of books, knowledgeable staff, welcoming surroundings and the opportunity to meet other, literature-loving people. It grew to become the world’s largest subscription library service and even today is remembered with fondness by former subscribers. Judith is a Senior Boots Archivist and this illustrated talk explores the history of the library and it’s workings.
Tickets: £6 full, £5 concessions, £4 Festival Friends (including tea and cake) are available from The Bookcase either over the counter or on the Box Office line 0115 966 3219.
