Storehouse of Words Exhibition

Woodhorn Museum, Northumberland

Storehouse of Words reveals the story of the Northern Poetry Library and takes an inspired look at the connections between poetry and life. Located in the heart of Northumberland, the library is an important archive but it is also a living, breathing library meant for people to use and enjoy.

Come along to find out more about contemporary poetry, listen to new work written by NPL’s six poets in residence and have a go at writing your own poem – and add it to the #anchoredterset board.

The exhibition is open to the public until 6th November 2016, after which it travels to Durham Palace Green. Entrance is free but there is a carpark charge of £3.50 per car to enter the museum.


Take part – write a poem for the #anchoredterset board

Libraries are reservoirs of strength, grace and wit, reminders of order, calm and continuity, lakes of mental energy, neither warm nor cold, light nor dark. Germaine Greer, writer, academic and feminist
