TDGR Librarians Report for 2017.

Although 2017 has been another very quiet year in terms of reference to and borrowing from the Guild Library it has been a busy year in terms of displays and information supplied and also with the installation of the new bookshelves.

The shelves are part of a generous legacy from former Guild General Secretary and Cathedral Ringers Anthony Davidson and have now been installed in the Cathedral Ringing chamber where they house a large number of the ringing journals.

I have been asked on a number of occasions to create and supply displays for various tower events across the Guild particularly for Crantock and St. Austell and have been pleased to provide them. I have the Guild Display boards and banner which are freely available for publicity. I have also been asked on a number of occasions to assist with historical research on either individual towers or Guild history, I am always pleased to help with this.

If you have any tower/church events on the horizon and wish me to produce displays of either ringing history or ringing in general, please ask but if possible try and let me have a few weeks’ notice, I will be happy to help.

 

Ian Self

Librarian to the Truro Diocesan Guild of Ringers.

 

Access to Guild Library

Please contact the Guild Librarian so that you may arrange to borrow or inspect any item in the catalogue below.

The Guild Librarian may also be able to assist on historical matters concerning the Guild, churches, towers, bells and ringers.

NB. The Guild Librarian holds the Guild banner available to borrow for your tower open days or other fund raising or ringing events. It is a “pull up” 6 foot tall advertising and information display banner which comes with its own built in stand.
