It's the last day of #LibrariesWeek and we'd like to remind our followers that anyone can research the collection, free of charge! More details at:

We have so many wonderful books, some of which can be adopted by supporters, such as this first edition of Mary Robinson's 'Poems'. Robinson wrote this first collection of poetry whilst her husband was in debtor's prison. Her portrait hangs in the Great Hall.
