Living Knowledge Network in Surrey libraries

We are excited to announce that Surrey Libraries are now a member of the Living Knowledge Network. Created by the British Library, the Living Knowledge Network is a UK wide partnership of national and public libraries centred on exchanging knowledge and developing world class, memorable experiences for public library users.

Being part of the Living Knowledge Network gives Surrey Libraries customers access to a vast array of cultural events within their local library, including exhibitions, screenings, talks and even livestreams that you can watch from home! This is part of our journey to transform our Surrey libraries into local cultural hubs.

Events

Chinese and British

  • 18 November 2022 until 23 April 2023.

Chinese communities have been calling the UK home for much longer than many realise. Tracing their heritage back to regions in East and South-East Asia, they have established a rich and diverse culture across the UK.

In a new free display from the British Library, we reflect on this long history through photographs, manuscripts and interviews with those who have lived through it.

Join us to celebrate the history and lasting legacy of this vibrant community, and to understand what it really means to be Chinese and British.

Details and locations to follow.
