Thread Name: Vaughan Williams Memorial Library & its importance
Subject: RE: Vaughan Williams Memorial Library & its importance
Vic, cant you read, it was not the cost of getting to Derby.
as yet no one has replied with details of how often the library is visited, the problenm as I see it, is that C#HOUSE has become rather like a religious shrine, and periodically we get a mantra about the importance of the library, it is almost as if some people believe that if it is repeated often enough we will believe it.
The library is a collection of books, Sound archives and recordings, they are useful as long as people are using it.
I suspect that a lot of singers these days just regurgitate songs from someone elses cd.
I would like to see the library used more and have the premises to expand, I think its present geographical situation, and present building is a disadvantage.
