Old Library Exhibition: Keeping a Diary
Magdalene Old Library will be opening its doors to the public over summer.
The September exhibition will focus on Keeping a Diary. A selection of some of the wonderful 19th and 20th diaries held by the Archive and Special Collections offers a glimpse into the private lives of notable figures including AC Benson, Dean Inge and Dorothea Richards.
Distinct from the Pepys Library, the Old Library has housed the historic books of the College in First Court since the fifteenth century, in what was the medieval Prior's residence.
As well as enjoying the historic, book-lined rooms, Visitors will see displays of items from the College's special collections and archives, which are not normally seen in public.
Readers and researchers who wish to consult the collections are asked to contact the Library in advance for an appointment.
