Members-only Library Visit

As you may have read about in the newsletter, the History Society has arranged a members-only session at Keighley Local Studies Library for Saturday 13th July, from 10 am to 1pm.

Members of the Library staff will give us a brief overview of the Local Studies Library and then let us look through some of the archives they hold. These will include the collections of the Keighley Photographic Society, collections from the ‘BK’ archive (a serial code notation that includes trade posters, carte de visite, family photo albums and the collections of some notable Keighley figures like Dr Scattery), and a taster of the Ian Dewhirst Archive that is still being worked on.

There are around 30 places available. Tim Neal has sent an email to members (please check your spam folders in you haven’t seen it). To book a place please reply to Tim’s email. We will allocate places on a first-come first-served basis. We are asking for £2 per person attending to cover costs.
