Our team of library assistants worked really hard yesterday to prepare the Shakespeare Display ready for our competition which opens today!
The cabinet displaying the competition props has been installed at Bury Library but other libraries across the Borough will be joining in: Topping Fold; Whitefield; Prestwich and Tottington will be displaying images of the items and will have postcards and bookmarks to hand out.
We couldn’t help be intrigued by all the props and before we put them behind glass we acted out a few dramatic poses to get us (and hopefully you) in the mood for celebrating Shakespeare’s life and works.
Together with the competition, we have some fabulous Shakespeare books for you to borrow and a variety of DVDs for hire: the new adaptation of Macbeth starring Michael Fassbender is, we think, completely engrossing!
So – if you want to ‘brush up you Shakespeare’ and be in with a chance of winning a £30.00 National Book Token please get down to either Bury, Prestwich, Whitefield, Tottington or Topping Fold library to pick up an entry form.
