Liberate My Library

(11 February 2020)

Durham Library & Collections are launching a new Liberate My Library initiative. 

We have wonderful collections across Durham’s libraries and museums but we want to make our collections even more diverse. This February we are working with Durham Students Union to encourage students and staff to recommend items that will increase the diversity of the library’s collections.

We hope that staff and students will be inspired to recommend the widest possible range of new additions to our collections. Are there works created by, or representing people, within LGBT+ communities you would like to see on the shelves of our library? What about works relating to the experiences of BAME or disabled communities? How about issues of gender and identity? 

To get involved pick up a card at any of our libraries or museums or go online to
