THE ROLE of news in society is the focus of a new exhibition at Kenilworth Library.
Breaking the News is a pop-up exhibition which will showcase some of the most important local stories and help residents to explore the significance of news in our communities.
Kenilworth Library is the second library in the county to host the exhibition, following its debut in at Rugby Library earlier this year.
The exhibition is being shown as part of a collaboration between Warwickshire County Council’s Library Service and the Living Knowledge Network, a partnership between The British Library and public libraries throughout the country.
Warwickshire County Council’s transformation spokesman Coun Andy Jenns said: “We are delighted to host the Breaking the News pop-up exhibition in Warwickshire in collaboration with the British Library’s Living Knowledge Network.
“Journalism plays an important role in our society but also carries responsibilities relating to choice, interpretation, truth, and trust, and these themes are really brought to life in the exhibition to challenge and explore visitors’ views.
“This is a really exciting opportunity for residents to learn more about the news and journalism, and we look forward to welcoming the people of Warwickshire to visit us and find out more about what happens behind the headlines.”
The exhibition at Kenilworth Library runs until May 20.
The exhibition in Warwickshire is part of a collective of more than 30 libraries across the UK hosting exhibition pop-ups, and will run alongside the major Breaking the News exhibition at the British Library in London from April 22 to August 21.
