The Library Lectures

In the summer of 1999 the Chief Librarian of Yateley Library invited the Yateley Society to mount a large local history exhibition to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Library, and to arrange a Library Lecture with a local history subject. The background was fully explained in the Society's first Fact & Fiction exhibition held at Yateley Industries on 3 July 1999. The Librarian wanted the exhibition to appeal to Key Stage 3 children using the Library under the terms of the joint provision. This fitted in precisely with the objectives of the Fact or Fiction exhibition, as set out in the Society's newsletter No.71 of April 1999.


There were a total of six Library Lectures between 1999 and 2005.
