The Linenhall Library in Belfast is hosting an exhibition called 'From Home to Here' throughout the month of October.

The exhibition is based around the theme of migration to the 'New World' of America and it sounds interesting, particularly to those with relations in the States.

The exhibition has lots of migration stories, including original letters describing what life was like for both Irish emigrants and those they left behind. There are interviews, artefacts and lots of other mementoes and objects to evoke the migration that changed the face of  Ireland and influenced the development of America.

'From Home to Here' runs until 31st October and the exhibition runs throughout the libary's opening hours. The Linenhall Library is open 9.30 to 5.30 Monday to Friday and 9.30 until 4pm on Saturdays.
