Today saw the opening of The Elizabeth Treffry Reading Room at Krowji Studios, Redruth’s creative hub. All the 3000 books and artefacts in there are by or about women in Cornwall. One of the speakers quoted Germaine Greer as a woman who had influenced him, here speaking about libraries. Perfect, isn’t it? This place is going to be such a fabulous resource for research.
“Libraries are reservoirs of strength, grace and wit, reminders of order, calm and continuity, lakes of mental energy, neither warm nor cold, light nor dark … In any library in the world, I am at home, unselfconscious, still and absorbed.”
There were refreshments!
