Hove in WWI

A big thank you to Margaret Curson of the Brighton and Hove Libraries Service Rare Books Archive for her fascinating talk about the archives and special collection related to World War One at Hove Library in December 2015.
This event was part of our monthly Conversation Cafe session, as part of the Fabrica run Boys on the Plaque project, and funded by the Heritage Lottery.


We really enjoyed looking through some rare and special resources at this library, complete with its’ own WWI War memorial.
The annexe at Hove Library was once a smoking balcony for readers at the library, but a behest in the early part of the 20th century, allowed for the room to be re-built as part of Hove Library proper.
