Editor’s Note: November 2018

It’s been two weeks since the start of our exhibition, and the response has been nothing short of amazing. We’d like to take this month’s Editor’s Note to thank all of you who took time out of your schedule to drop by, whether for our curated programmes or even just for a short bit while browsing at the library!

Here are a few photos we took along the way that we thought you’d like to look back upon:
