The Million Book Library

To celebrate 50 years of Western Bank Library a new exhibition opens in the Western Bank Exhibition Gallery on Tuesday 19 October and will run until 14 January 2011.

In 1953 The University of Sheffield announced a national competition for a new master plan for the Western Bank site, in which a library capable of holding one million volumes was to hold pride of place.

Through photographs, architectural drawings and other original documents from the University and Library collections the display explores the Western Bank Library from concept, to construction and opening. Central to the display and to mark this special occasion is a commissioned replica model of the original 1953 architectural vision for the site, constructed by students Tom Hudson and Phil Etchells.
