Image of a Miners' Strike 1984-1985 support cardEvery month on display in the hall at the Library and on the website is a different object, book or document from the Library collection chosen by our volunteers.

March’s object is Miners’ Strike 1984-1985 support cards. Bethan who chose them said: “I chose this collection of 5 cards, created by the group Artvists from Barnsley, Yorkshire, as I feel they are a great way to show support and to make the public aware of the situation in the mining communities. With their eye-catching images of the events through out the strike and bold colours, they draw people in to look at the contents inside. Once inside there are a number of different forms of literature from short facts to poetry on the subject of the strike and issues concerning the striking families.”
