Beyond the Books – an Oral History talk celebrating 60 years of Broomhill Library

18 Sep

Join us for an informative and enjoyable evening of history about our Sheffield Libraries with a main talk led by Val Hewson, and an update on the Broomhill Library Conservation Project. Come & share your memories of the library here in Broomhill and the area at the time the library first opened its doors.

Locally sourced refreshments included in the ticket price.

Val Hewson is an independent researcher based in Sheffield. After a career in the civil service, Val has picked up her academic interests again. Her current focus is Reading Sheffield, an oral history project about popular reading in Sheffield in the 20th century, which is led by Dr Mary Grover and supported by Sheffield Hallam University and others.

Val is editor of the Reading Sheffield website ( and is researching authors, books and genres cited in the oral histories. This has also led Val to explore the context for the oral histories, including particularly the history of Sheffield’s public library service and the librarians who shaped it. Val has always been a fan of libraries, having to date belonged to eight and worked, briefly, in one.
