Library displays

We use a display space in the library to show highlights from our collection, including small scale sculpture, works on paper, rare books and archival material.

Currently on display

Our current display uses material from the library’s collection to highlight Herbert Read as both visionary supporter of the arts and revolutionary writer on society more widely.
