The Montgomery Library is home to Storytelling With A Twist's Creative Reminiscence Collection and Godly Play.


Creative Reminiscence Collection


We are the home of Storytelling With A Twist's Creative Reminiscence Collection as part of our lending library. The collection has been specifically designed using objects from the 1940s and 1950s to be used as a resource to support care homes, lunch clubs and day centres, and also as an intergenerational resource for schools.


The ten themes are:

Women's Beauty

Men's Grooming

Smoking

Washday

Childhood Pastimes

Make Do and Mend

Cooking and Rationing

Medicine

Courting and Marriage

To find our more about the project, visit Storytelling With A Twist here, or watch this short video

Godly Play


Our lending library hosts Godly Play; a fantastic creative resource that can be used not just in children's ministry, but with children who have no church background, schools, hospitals, and also care settings for older people. The style of of storytelling encourages people to make meaning for themselves and to connect these stories with personal experience.
