There is another creative line-up for July at the Human Library in Bootle.
The Human Library, at the Bootle Library building on Stanley Road, was launched a year ago to support local adults and families through the creation of a place where people ‘gift’ their talents or experience to benefit others.
Now 12 months on, the Human Library (organised by Sefton Council and funded by Arts Council England) has become a hub for the whole community with creative events that are free and where everyone is welcome.
Here is the programme of activities for this month. Look out for Living Well mentor Natasha Wilksberg delivering weekly yoga activities:
13th July (tomorrow) – 11am-1pm Human Library Voices Podcasting Group – tell us a Bootle Story, share your life advice with us, listen to the Podcasting Programme or suggest a subject for broadcasting. No experience of podcasting, broadcasting or digital recording equipment required!
21st July – 11am-12.30pm Plant Party with Leanne – our florist in residence leads us on a quest to green Bootle library, creating a green oasis in one of our windows. Learn about plant care and ask your plant questions.

20th July – 11am-12.30pm North End Sketch Club – open to first timers or experienced sketchers, this group is all about having a scribble together! A laid-back approach to having a go at sketching with basic materials provided with artist Jayne Lawless.
