book conservationFor many years we have had a team working on book conservation in the Courtney Library at the Royal Cornwall Museum in Truro.

We work once a month on the fascinating collection of books, papers, and manuscripts, all having some link to Cornish history. Amongst them, there are old and new, dilapidated and pristine articles, all to be checked to ensure they survive safely for the future – and all with a tale to tell.

We always welcome new members to the team. Our training and updates take place every two years, given by a skilled professional, and we hope for a session in 2022.

So if you would like to find out more, and join in one of our work sessions, please ask one of the committee, who will pass on your name to the team.
