New 'Seven Stories 'exhibition for Carlisle Library

A new exhibition called 'The Seven Stories' which has been created by three local schools and four community groups, is on display at Carlisle Library.

The artwork, produced by stroke survivors, disabled adults, and people with mental health issues, is inspired by the library's wonderful collection of books.

Each group or school has looked to different genres of books for inspiration.

"The standard of artwork in the exhibition is testament to the creative and artistic skills of all involved.

"We would like to thank Prism Arts and their team for their commitment and support throughout this project. We are also grateful to The Arts Council England for providing funding for the project."

– Councillor Ian Stewart, Cumbria County Council
