Materials Library

Irish literature lined up on a shelf.
Materials Library

Over the years, Liverpool Irish Festival has amassed something of an archive of books and papers, journals and materials.

Though we weren’t been able to share it during the Covid years, we’re back to showcasing the archive in the fully accessible and friendly drop-in space at Everyman Street Café. There’ll be colouring sheets for the kids; fiction for light reads and some historic tomes for a deeper interrogation of identity. By no means a full library, this is a resource for anyone to dip in and out of, to while away a half-term afternoon or a bit of time over lunch.

It’s also a great space to pick up a Festival newspaper, a copy of Brave Maeve or The Liver Birds for a loved one and enjoy a brew.
