 What is a memory pack? 

Each ‘memory pack’ is a collection of picture books, photographs, jigsaws, DVDs, music and other resources on a theme. 

Topics include: 

  • Daily Life 
  • Local interest e.g. Old Market Square 
  • Holidays 
  • Working Life 
  • Childhood 
  • Specific decades e.g. 1950s
