Group visits can be arranged to the William Salt Library. As part of a group visit, we provide a general talk about the work of the Library, the types of documents that we hold and an introduction on how to use the Library. In addition there will be a display of documents about your particular area or the subject interest of your group and the Librarian will also talk about the documents on display. Please note that we cannot accommodate visits during the day.
There is a minimum requirement of 12 people for a group visit and the maximum number which we can accommodate is 20. The fee per group for a visit on a weekday is £45-00 and £50-00 for Saturdays. Organisers are asked to confirm the final numbers two days prior to a visit. If the minimum number cannot be met, the William Salt Library reserves the right to cancel a visit at this point.
The Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent Archive Service| also runs a number of talks and visits.
