Friends of the Old Library Autumn Event
Past Masters Exhibition

Saturday, September 28, 2013

The next Friends of the Old Library event will take place on Saturday 28 September 2013, from 2.30pm to 5pm.

Since the last Friends event on 16 March 2013, an exciting new exhibition in the Old Library has been launched on the theme of Past Masters. It considers five centuries of leadership at Christ’s College, drawing on a fascinating range of material relating to some of the inspirational and intriguing characters who have held the position of Master.

The rich and varied display, including numerous photographs, letters, books written by Masters themselves and historic video and audio footage, can be viewed exclusively by guests from 2.30pm. At 3pm there will be a chance to hear current Christ’s Master, Professor Frank Kelly, talk about his experience in the role.

Following a break for refreshments, the Library Team will then launch a new scheme to raise additional funds for conservation of the historic collections in the Old Library. Entitled Sponsor a Book, interested individuals will be invited to sponsor the cost of conserving specific books in the Old Library. A small array of books in need of conservation will be on display in the Old Library. 

With book sponsorship costs ranging from £50 to over £1000, and materials from a wide range of subjects on offer, there should be something to suit every budget and interest. In return for your generous support of our conservation activities, a personalised book plate will be inserted into your sponsored book as a long-lasting token of our gratitude.
