Lisburn City Library and Storyteller in Residence Liz Weir celebrate Creativity Month during March

During March, Lisburn City Library will host two great events for Creativity Month.  

On Tuesday 20 March 2018 at 2:00pm, Libraries NI Storyteller in Residence Liz Weir will bring along friends to take part in an amazing event to celebrate Word Storytelling Day. 

Liz is a renowned storyteller and writer and she was the first winner of the International Story Bridge Award from the National Storytelling Network, USA, which cited her “exemplary work promoting the art of storytelling”.  The afternoon promises to be truly memorable for all who attend and, if you have forgotten just how enjoyable and calming it can be to hear different stories, then make sure you put this date in your diary.

On Tuesday 27 March 2018 at 6:30pm, Libraries NI Writer in Residence Nuala McKeever will host an event to bring the month of library visits and workshops to a close in Lisburn City Library. The event will showcase all of the elements from Nuala’s Writer in Residence activities along with the Creative Conversation programme feedback that celebrated the creative industry of TV and film.

Booking is essential for the event so please contact Lisburn City Library t: 028 9269 9345 or

Commenting on the events, Lisburn City Library Branch Manager Mary-Ellen Leighton said:

“I am looking forward to both of these free events as they provide unique opportunities for members of the public to engage with storytelling and creative writing in the open, relaxing environment of Lisburn City Library.”   

Creativity Month is funded by the Department for Communities. The Storyteller in Residence programme is funded by the ‘Peg and Jim Armstrong Bursary’ which was set up as a tribute to the founding members of Tullycarnet Yarnspinners, Peg and Jim Armstrong, with the aim of promoting the art of storytelling.
