The RSM organises a number of exhibitions each year which are open to the public and take place in the Library.

current exhibition:

Restoration for Research 2: Book Conservation at the RSM Library


Monday 7th August until Saturday 28th October 2017


Restoration For Research 2

This exhibition is a follow up to our 2013 exhibition Restoration for Research.

We want to highlight the book conservation work of the library especially that of out conservation volunteers who each attend fortnightly and help keep out books in good enough condition to handle.

In addition to the volunteers, we use money raised from the Friends of the Library to pay for professional book-binding. 

Admission free. Open to all.


Exhibition opening hours

Monday - Thursday 9am - 9pm
Friday 9am - 5.30pm
Saturday 10am - 4.30pm

Entrance to the exhibitions is free.
