Dear Readers,

We wish you all the appropriate seasonal greetings and we hope that you have a refreshing holiday.  Dr Williams's Library is alive, if not quite kicking.  We close our doors to our customary services on Tuesday the 14th December and re-open at the end of January 2022.  There are still many books and paintings in the Gordon Square building waiting to be sent into storage. Clearly we should all like to expedite matters (the Covid pandemic has caused frustrations and delays) but staff will need some uninterrupted time to see this through. Thank you for your patience.
