The Museum’s acquisition of Castle House has made it possible to resume the sale of good quality second hand books on behalf of the Friends, which has proved a valuable source of income in the past. The bookshelf is situated in a convenient position in Castle House, which is across the courtyard opposite the museum entrance. It is in a light and spacious position with comfortable seating for those wishing to browse. FOTMOS will be most grateful if you can make regular donations of suitable books so that fresh stock is always available; they can be brought to The Friends’ meetings or handed to a member of the museum staff at the reception desk. All proceeds will be used to further the work of the museum. Thanks are due to Betty Carter for donating the bookcase, Brian Hunter for facilitating it’s move, Susie Simmons for establishing the area for it to occupy and Ben Clark for performing the necessary carpentry to make it fit.
