Introduction: The Saffron Walden Library Then and Now Exhibition, (1832-2004) 14-16 October 2004
This on-line exhibition was written for the exhibition "Saffron Walden Library, Then and Now", held in Saffron Walden Library. It celebrates the ongoing influence of the Town Library in the lives of the people of Saffron Walden, Essex. It was written with the help of local historian Barbara Hughes to celebrate the end of the cataloguing and refurbishment project in 2004. Eighteen volunteers from the Town Library Society helped make the exhibition possible, and Gordon Ridgewell kindly took the photographs.
