This month sees the return of the Plymouth History Festival, an annual celebration of Plymouth's hertitage and there's hundreds of activities taking place across the city. From talks, guided walks and behind the scenes tours, to performances, family activities, exhibitions and displays – there’s something for everybody.
If you're interested in finding out more about Plymouth's history, your local library is a great place to start and during this month we will be highlighting a few of the resources we have available.
Type Plymouth into our online catalogue and you'll get over 5,300 results. Books on Plymouth are some of the most popular titles borrowed from our libraries.
We asked our local history expert, Graham Naylor to recommend his top five books on Plymouth history.
Some of our history titles are reference only, so they will need to be read in a library, but we also have a lot you can borrow (look for the number 942.358) and we've even put together a list of Plymouth eBooks
you can download.
