A final farewell to our County Hall branch
- 25th November 2011
On Monday 14th November, we held an open day event to give our users one last chance to view some of the treasured items from within our collections before we closed for the final time. The day was a big success and people thoroughly enjoyed seeing the documents out on display.
?We had a lot of fun opening up the archives for our users to see some of the items that don’t normally get issued, such as Shakespeare’s marriage bond, a letter sent from the Titanic and letters sent during the Civil War written by Charles I and Oliver Cromwell.
It was very sad to close our doors for the final time and we will miss our many regular users, but we have a lot of work to keep us busy whilst we prepare to move premises.
We won’t open at our new home until July 2012, but don’t forget there are still plenty of research opportunities available at our History Centre branch, which will stay open until April 2012.
