Friends of the William Salt Library

Join the Friends of the William Salt Library

The Friends of the William Salt Library play a vital role in supporting the preservation of this unique and special library, which forms a vital part of Staffordshire's documentary and printed heritage.

Through an annual programme of various social events, the friends raise valuable funds to assist the library in the ongoing task of preserving and conserving its collections and in the acquisition of new publications about Staffordshire. Volunteers assist in the improvement of the library's finding aids and in the practical task of cleaning and repackaging items from the collections.

Recent projects

Recent projects have included funding:

  • the rebinding of some of William Salt's rare printed books
  • the purchase of acid free, archival quality packaging materials for the manuscript collections
