Although the playing season is fading into memory, the Heritage team at Trent Bridge are working as hard as ever to develop new projects, re-invigorate existing programmes and make further improvements to the Library services.
Mondays are borrowing days
One major change is that current NCCC members can still borrow books from the Wynne-Thomas Library, in one of two ways:
- By visiting the Library between 12:00 noon and 2:00 pm on Mondays from 23 October to 11 December (inclusive).
- Or by requesting books by email and collecting them from the Ticket Office. The team are working on a comprehensive digital catalogue during the autumn, but until this is available books can be requested by email in two ways:
- If you know the specific book(s) that you would like to borrow, email the details to firstname.lastname@example.org with your NCCC membership number and a daytime telephone number.
- If you don’t know the specific book(s) that you would like to borrow, email email@example.com with the cricketing topic(s) that you are interested in (again, with your NCCC membership number and a daytime telephone number). The Library team will then provide a list of relevant books for you to choose the titles to borrow.
With its lending service now established and the membership greatly appreciative of the services on offer, the Wynne-Thomas Library has been adding to its already impressive stock of books.
More than thirty new books are now available to borrow, ranging from cricketing ‘classics’ to biographies (always the most popular section) and works that reflect cricket’s place in society. These latter have been chosen in response to the recent ICEC Report on Diversity and Inclusion in the sport.
The Wynne Thomas Library also now offers more than twenty cricket books for children that parents and grandparents are welcome to borrow for your younger supporters.
All visitors are welcome to browse the books and magazines in the Library but the lending service is only available to Notts members – a membership benefit that is proving increasingly popular.
