Crich Tramway Village welcomes our new Librarian, Robert Morris.
Robert is married with two daughters and originally worked for the National Trust Photographic Library in London. He moved to Derbyshire 15 years ago, after visiting with his wife for short breaks. His daughters were born shortly after making the move to Derbyshire.
When Robert is not working at Crich, he is a freelance photographer and enjoys walking, cycling and reading.
Robert joins our Curator, Laura Waters, Curatorial Assistant, Hannah Bale and our growing team of volunteers as part of the Curatorial Department. The team are responsible for the on-going care of all the collections here at the Museum.
Robert’s focus as Librarian will be to promote and provide access to the collections held in the John Price Memorial Library, including sorting through the backlog of donations that we have.
The Library holds one of the largest and most comprehensive collections of material relating to tramways in the World, and is recognised as being of National Importance in this country by being a Designated collection.
The Library is open to anyone who would like to carry out research, Monday – Friday 9.30am – 4.30pm, you just need to drop us an email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone us 01773 854338 to arrange a visit
