What's on at the library

Paper talks: Jersey Dragon Exhibition, Tuesday 16 May to Friday 30 June

Following fast on the heels of the hugely successful 'Paper Dialogues - the Dragon and our Stories' exhibition at St. Helier Town Hall. The Jersey Arts Trust is keeping the dialogue of 'paper cutting' alive through the Skipton Art Series with their island-wide initiative 'Paper Talks'.   

As a legacy to the 'Paper Dialogues' exhibition, the work created by students and the community has contributed to the dialogue in the form of Jersey's very own paper-cut dragon. The Jersey 'Paper Dragon', a 3D sculptural installation, will be flying its way through the Jersey Library as part of a celebratory showcase entitled 'Paper Talks' across different venues in 2017.

Free admission: no booking necessary.
