Show Notes

2020 is Liverpool’s Year of Reading. We got off to a great start in January with a launch at Liverpool Central Library – but world events have meant we’ve revisited our plans.
 
In this Zoom episode, we speak to Cllr Barbara Murray, Liverpool City Council’s cabinet member for education employment and skills, and the driving force behind #Liverpoolreads.
 
Barbara tells us about her own reading journey and how it’s never too late for someone to call themselves a reader.
 
Also, the libraries may be closed but that doesn’t mean that you can’t borrow some of the thousands of e-books, audio books, newspapers and magazines from our digital library. Please visit www.readliverpool.co.uk
