On Friday 7th November, BBC South Today came to Chawton House Library to film a feature on the launch of an urgent book conservation appeal.
Alongside staff, two current visiting fellows from Romania and California took part in the video, and a library volunteer was filmed cleaning a unique volume. Librarian, Dr Darren Bevin, brought out some of the items in most desperate need of repair for filming.
It is hoped that the clip will have helped to spread the word about this important campaign that aims to raise money to preserve Chawton House Library’s collection of some 10,000 volumes and original manuscripts.
