Dear Diary…

Do you consider yourself the modern day Samuel Pepys or is your life more akin to the mishaps of Bridget Jones?

Whatever your life circumstance or situation, Blackpool Library Service wants to read your diary to gain a real glimpse into your life. The diaries will document the lives of Blackpool citizens in a unique way, forming a valuable insight for future generations to learn about your lifestyle, including your hopes and aspirations for the future. With the option to remain completely anonymous, you can include as much as you like, being as detailed or as vague as you choose.
The diaries will then be archived in the Local and Family History Centre, situated in Blackpool Central Library, giving you the exciting opportunity to be a part of the future heritage of this town.
All you need to do is pop into your local library and ask a member of staff for a Blackpool Library Diary form or you can download your form here. All we ask is that you give us some basic details, including your age and the area of Blackpool that you live in.

All entries need to be handed back in before the November 15th and document what happens in your life on October 31st.

We would also like to use a selected few at a Wordpool event on Thursday 15th November, if you would be happy for us to use your diary in this way, please provide us with your contact details*.

Diaries have been a popular theme throughout literature for years, here are a few of our favourites;

-The Perks of being a Wallflower- Stephen Chbosky
-The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole- Sue Townsend
-Go Ask Alice- Anonymous
-The Diary of a Young Girl- Anne Frank
-Into the Wild- Jon Krakauer

*Please note: Any contact details provided will not be passed on to any other organisation and will be removed from your diary prior to adding them to our archive.

Pssssst, did you know?
Perks of Being a Wallflower has just been made into a hit film starring Harry Potter actress Emma Watson, we recommend you read the book first and feel infinite just like Charlie.
