A FREE Lit & Phil Live Event 

A project that began life  during lockdown, we are delighted to host the launch Alison Menzies’ fascinating account of the history of the site of the library up to its opening in 1825.  Most appropriately, Friday 2nd September 2022 is  the bicentenary of the laying  of the building’s foundation stone by Augustus Frederick, Duke of Sussex.
