Three Centuries of a City Library

by George A. Stephen

This book was prepared by instruction of the Norwich Public Library Committee, and it is now published as a souvenir of the sixtieth anniversary of the opening of the present Public Library, which will take place on March 16th, 1917. Norwich occupies a unique place in the history of libraries: it has the distinction of having established in 1608 one of the earliest provincial public libraries, if not the first in England, and it was the first municipality to adopt the Public Library Act, 1850. It is hoped, therefore, that the following sketch, besides giving local readers and archŠologists a detailed account of an important Norwich institution, will form an interesting chapter in the history of British Libraries.

Author of the Day

Madison Kent
Growing up, Madison Kent has always been fascinated by the mere fact that Jack the Ripper, one of the most notorious murders ever known, escaped justice. She would dream of her own alternative version of the facts and decided to write her own story, in which the suspects are totally different people.
