Great books on sale at The Hive

The Hive, Worcester
5 Year Anniversary Celebrations
Published Monday, 16th February 2015

Keen local historians are being encouraged to visit The Hive this Friday, where there will be a sale of books.

The reason for the sale is that in 2012, when the Worcestershire Record Office and Worcestershire Historic Environment and Archaeology Service merged, their libraries were brought together. This resulted in a large number of duplicates of books already available in the local studies and archaeology library at The Hive.

Victoria Bryant, Manager of Worcestershire Archive and Archaeology Service, said: "Bringing together our reference libraries to create one large local studies and archaeology library at The Hive has meant those interested in Worcestershire's heritage have a fantastic free resource, on one site, to complement their research.

"In addition, we are really pleased to be able to offer the opportunity for local people to purchase our duplicate items for their own collections.

"All proceeds raised from the sale will be used to support the work of the Archive and Archaeology Service, so those buying books will be helping to support us and protect Worcestershire's history and heritage."

The event will take place on Friday, February 20 between 2 and 4pm in The Studio at The Hive, Worcester.
