Palace Green Library, in the heart of Durham city, holds Durham University's special collections. Our galleries are open to all and display treasures spanning millennia and the globe.
What's On View All Events
A talk given by Dr. Sarah Price, Head of Engagement and Learning, Durham University Library, on collections-based learning in the Library and its development from small beginnings to national recognition.
We warmly welcome young people (age 12 – 25) who hear voices, their families and carers to a networking event at the Café in Palace Green Library, Durham. Taking place over tea, coffee and cake, this event will be a chance to meet other young people who have similar experiences, share ideas and stories and discuss ways to increase local sources of support for young people who find their voices distressing.
