Our May History Room display celebrates the past 200 years of publishing, with a small selection of our books which were published in 1819. Of the 124 items in our collection that were printed in 1819, this display showcases just a few that cover topics such as Egyptology, politics, science and music. You can read about the display in greater depth here http://ow.ly/wTEi50uqKp4 Members of the public who wish to see the display and learn more about the library can join a Glimpse at 12pm, 2pm, or 4pm any day of the week.

Writers are renowned for their varying habits! Virginia Woolf is said to have spent two and a half hours every morning writing on a standing desk; Truman Capote wouldn’t begin or end a piece of work on a Friday; and John Steinbeck kept no less than 12 pencils on his desk at any given time. All of this is detailed in Odd Type Writers by Celia Blue Johnson. What sort of writerly habits have you developed? Are you an early bird ????or a night owl ?????

Britain's biggest downfall may well be its somewhat inconsistent weather...luckily, Gladstone's Library caters for both sun and showers thanks to our beautiful gardens, and equally incredible Reading Rooms! Why not book a stay with us and experience the two sides for yourself? #gardens #reading #writing #library #flintshire
