The libraries that remain in country houses throughout the British Isles preserve some of the nation’s great literary treasures. They also provide a unique insight into the use of books across the centuries, the role of the country house as a community resource and the value that owners and custodians have placed on antiquarian books in relation to works of fine and applied art. Join Tim Pye, Libraries Curator for the National Trust, as he explores the history of country house libraries, their survival (and sometimes dispersal), the cultural value that these historic collections have today and the role that they may play in the future.
Refreshments include a glass of red or white wine. A non-alcoholic option will be available.
