Adopt-a-Book Fundraiser

Help us to preserve the history of public health and global disease by adopting a book from the Library’s historical collections.

The Library invites you to play a part in preserving a unique and invaluable resource by joining us at a special reception and fundraiser for the School’s Adopt-a-Book campaign. The reception will take place in the Keppel Street Library on Friday 18 September 2015 from 6pm – 8pm.

A collection of rare books, correspondence and other items from the Library and Archives will be on display, including a rare first edition of Edward Jenner’s treatise on Vaccination, annotated by the Southampton Anti-Vaccination League. There will also be a special performance by members of the Mustard Club. Wine and canapes will be served – all round, a great way to end a Friday and start a weekend.

We would ask that each guest make a donation of £10 towards the School’s conservation and preservation activities. By helping to preserve our past, you will be ensuring future researchers will benefit from this knowledge in the future.

Please register for this event by Wednesday 16 September 2015. pile of books

Adopting a Book

Adopting a book from the School’s collections is a great way to mark an event, remember the life of a friend, relation or colleague or simply show your support for the Library.

You can adopt an individual title or a subject area, as well as contribute generally to the conservation and preservation of the School’s historical collections.

With your support, the Library can undertake a variety of preservation and conservation activities that will prevent further deterioration and enable successive generations to benefit from the scientific insights of the past.
