A small update about our plans and your lovely rewards

Dear All

It’s a been a little while since we updated you on the campaign. 

Lockdown 2.0 has meant we have very limited access to St Bride Foundation but we have plenty of preparatory work that we are undertaking remotely. 

We are still hard at work on our plans for our 125 Anniversary projects and January saw us enjoy the first of our talks, 'Inspired by St Bride' which featured an array of fantastic speakers and drew a large online audience. Our next talk is on 10 February with the excellent Agyei Archer:

We are moving forward with our digitisation plans and talking to various people, organisations and vendors who will help us on this adventure. We will also be looking to the SBF tribe to help us prioritise which areas of the collection to digitise that best meet your research and inspirational needs. 

Lockdown has made organising your lovely rewards a little more tricky, what with some of the rewards requiring access to our building to create them and some which come in packages a little too large to store at home, so please bear with us as we find ways to circumnavigate these slight hiccoughs. The majority are in the pipeline and we are beginning to send them out this month.

We hope January treated you as well as possible and that spring (which really isn’t too far off) will bring us all some much needed rebirth, respite, human contact, sunshine and lollipops! 

Thank you for all your kindness, love and support for St Bride Library and we hope to see you soon.
