Photo of the audience during a talk at Dora library


The Dora Library is in the Dora complex, originally a submarine base from World War II. Dora has now been developed into a ‘Culture Bunker’ and archive centre. The Dora Library is a partner in the Dora Archive Centre, which also consists of four archival institutions and a museum.

An outreach team at the Archive Centre works together on a variety of projects, exhibitions and cultural activities. A physical exhibition is set up in the reception area every year, with a focus on topical events in the community. See the programme on the Archive Centre’s website.
