Northern Poetry Library

The Northern Poetry Library (NPL) houses the largest collection of contemporary poetry outside London in the UK. The project remit – following the award of an Arts Council England grant – has been to raise its profile in a number of ways, to safeguard and build a future for the collection.


The central plank of the NPL project has been to create a digital presence for the library, part of the public library system. Lemony Design has project-managed, designed and developed a website, social media campaign and e-newsletter, with a wide remit aimed at raising awareness of the library among poetry-lovers, those new to poetry – regionally, nationally and internationally.

Partners and project participants include Woodhorn Museum, Palace Green Library, November Club, International Print Biennale 2016
