Exhibitions of our work over the years are listed in the 'Events' page but here are some images of our main displays, some of which were used on Keighley's Armed Forces Day and at The Keighley Show in the relevant years. These are displayed here in reverse order with our most recent exhibition at the top to save people scrolling down the page to see what's on at the moment. In case you're wondering why there are no people looking at these displays, We deliberately avoid taking photographs containing people in Keighley Library without permission, showing only the displays themselves. This is to respect privacy in a publicly owned building.

The Third battle of Ypres, and Passchendaele in Keighley Library showing from October to November 2017:

Title block 3rd Ypres Passchendaele

This exhibit was displayed in a series of banners suspended from the pillars in the library, these detailed chronologically the local men who took part in these battles, supplemented with images and extracts from battalion war diaries in relation to the experiences of some of the men.

We have now started placing this material online - click here
