The Future Library Festival, which is taking place from the 16th – 18th of October is looking for local residents who have a brilliant idea about what they’d like to do in their local library.

 

Do you love running, model planes or maybe a bit of Lindy Hop? Could talk and demonstrate your hobby for 60 minutes?  We would like to hear your suggestions on how you’d like to spend 60 minutes at your local library.  We will pay £50 for your contribution to the festival, which also includes any materials you might need. Anything is possible, think wild!

Over the festival weekend we will also be hosting a languages Cafe ,  Do you speak a foreign language that you could share with others? Do you want to maintain your holiday French? Are you going abroad to a new country and can’t say a word in the local tongue?

Come to the Languages Cafe and join a table for a conversation, language exchange and a laugh! as well as coffee and cake. No need to book. Simply show up on Saturday 17th Oct at 9.30am at Flitwick Library.

The artists are also looking for something that would make the library more comfortable that someone could lend to Flitwick Library for a few day.

The artists will then annotate your chair with your personal story. At the end of the festival, they will also give you a certificate to say that you’re chair has made your local library more comfortable. They can help with the pick up and delivery of the chairs too, so if you think you have the right seating for us, get in touch.
