About Canal Walks & Readings

All biological life – animals, plants, fungi, bacteria, and other single-celled organisms – depends on the existence of water. We are intimately linked to water, with our own bodies being 70% water.

Over 6 months, join us and artist Greg Herbert to explore our connection with the canal and riversides – slow, winding spaces that connect Bootle Library to Netherton Library. We will see the canal change over the seasons and gain a deeper understanding of the species and biological life that live alongside and within it. Along the way, we will explore fermenting, air quality, and underwater life, fungus, and wetlands.

Alongside monthly walks, you are invited to join a monthly ‘Reading in Nature’ group led by Michelle Barrett, where we will immerse in natural surroundings whilst exploring great stories about people and places. The group is for everybody, whether you love books or have never read before — come along for a friendly chat.

“Canal Walks & Readings” is an At the Library project supported and funded by Canal & River Trust.
