A Nottingham Library Remembers

Bromley House Library and The First World War 1914 – 1918

BH WW1 logo

 The Bromley House Library World War I commemorative exhibition has been made possible by the generosity and enthusiasm of the library’s members, who have offered to loan their precious photographs and mementos, and to tell the ‘stories’ behind their families’ experience of the Great War.

Most of these families were Nottingham people, and many had links with Bromley House Library.

The exhibition will be displayed in the Bromley House Gallery and in the main BH_4reading rooms, and will take the form of a series of family stories. Two and three dimensional objects and artefacts will be displayed alongside photographic images of those involved in the war – many of whom lost their lives.

A Resources Room will contain additional information packs, maps, and relevant printed material from the Library’s own book collections. There will be screen-based audio and visual information, and an opportunity to access online information resources.

We are grateful to the Lady Hind Trust for their generosity in supporting this exhibition.
