Sudbury library history talk

How well do you know Sudbury Library?

That is the question being posed by the Sudbury Society, which is organising a talk and slide show next Saturday.

Society press officer Anne Grimshaw will be explaining the history of the building, when it was built and who built it, and exploring the events that surrounded the time it was almost demolished in 1964.

The former corn exchange building was refurbished last year and now houses the town’s Tourist Information Centre.

Anne’s 20-minute talk, entitled Sudbury’s Phoenix, takes place in the meeting room at the library on Market Hill every hour, starting at 10am and running through to 3pm on Saturday, June 30. Admission is free.

The event is the society’s contribution to the annual Civic Day organised by a national charity promoting civic pride in England.
