We are delighted to host partner events for Exeter Literary Festival
This month’s Book of the Month by Edward Maunder, a Library volunteer, is inspired by two books in our Early Science collection – Thomas Young’s A course of lectures on natural philosophy and the mechanical arts (1807) and George Peacock’s Miscellaneous works of the late Thomas Young (1855).
Voltaire is said to have remarked that, ‘England has a hundred religions and only one sauce’ – our heritage collection suggests otherwise. This year, we are celebrating Heritage Open Days (10-19 September 2021) with a book display in the Outer Library curated by one of our members, Tony Rhodes.
This year, we're offering tours of our historic library and heritage site. There is an opportunity to view our display ‘Cooking the Books’ featuring historic recipes from our collection and join in with ‘Edible Flowers‘ workshops.
Having considered the new guidance and the local and national picture of rising Covid-19 cases, we have decided not to make any major changes to our current working practices for the time being. This will be reviewed at the beginning of September.
