Beyond the Library Door is a new project to catalogue and clean our old and rare books. Find out about our collections of thousands of rare books dating back to the 15th century (we want to tell you about what we’ve discovered so far) and see our Library Preservation Volunteers in action cleaning and condition recording the books.

- 12:00-13:00 & 15.00-16.00: Drop-in Book Cleaning Demonstrations at Sarum College. Come and chat to our Library Preservation Volunteers. There is more to cleaning a book than you might think!
