Bromley House Library, founded in 1816, is a flourishing independent lending library situated in the centre of Nottingham and is one of the few remaining subscription libraries in the country. The building houses nearly 50,000 books and has a tranquil and relaxed atmosphere. In addition to the many fine reading rooms spread over three floors of a Grade II listed Georgian townhouse, there is a beautiful walled garden, which is one of only two remaining in the city centre.
For anyone who does not want to this on their own, or does not have the necessary internet access, help will be available at the monthly lectures. You will just need to provide your name, email address, telephone number, your membership number (if you have it with you), and how many people you are booking for. If more than one, you will be asked for further details about them. You can also specify dietary requirements. You will then receive an email about payment but, if you wish, you can pay with a credit or debit card when getting help with the application form.
The first day of this was a learning process for committee members as well as for those booking, but we hope to get better and faster with experience.
It is the East Midlands Area of The Arts Society which organises the work needed to set up Trails of Discovery, and their representative, Gillian Murphy, is responsible for working with small groups of members from different societies on trails in their locality. She is anxious for members of all the local societies to get involved and wants to talk to them about ideas for projects or for offers of support.
