Something to Talke About!

Talke Community Managed Library, managed by Kidsgrove Care Solutions, saw a great turn out recently for the launch of a new local history book.

Over 90 members of the public came into the library on a Saturday morning to see the launch of ‘Talke Pits – A Former North Staffordshire Mining Village’, by Paul Dunning. Published by Audley and District Family History Society. It is the author’s account of the history of the village since the mid-19th Century

The book has been so popular hat they have had to do a second re-print, and copies are now available to purchase from the library for £7.50.

So What?

It is very important for libraries to host events like this, as it highlights the buildings as local hubs in the community.
