‘Not just any library’

Of course we know that the Parker Library is ‘not just any library‘ but it’s lovely to have the fact recognised by others.

We recently hosted a visit to the college from a group of young people who had all been finalists in the Jack Petchey Speak Out Challenge, organised by the Speakers Trust. The highlight of their visit was a trip to the library – and their visit was also the highlight of our day. One of them, Mahatir Pasha, wrote up his experience.

(It’s probably worth clarifying that the ‘monstrous book’ I let him hold wasn’t one of our manuscripts but a huge 18th-century printed atlas!)

  1. Great report by Mahatir Pasha. So glad the group enjoyed their visit to the Parker Library. Perhaps there are some future Cambridge University studnets among them!
