The 'Words Alive' project was a DfES-funded project undertaken by The British Library Education Service in collaboration with Camden Local Education Authority and Torbay Local Education Authority to create a cross-curricular programme to support literacy work in schools.
Using the three exhibition galleries and the unique range of material at The British Library in central London, the project created a programme of workshops and learning resources in all media.
