This is a great treasure of the church, established in 1598 when Reverend Francis Trigge, Rector of Welbourn, gave £100 for the purchase of books to set up the library.  There are 356 separate items including a book printed in Venice in 1472, that is four years before Caxton introduced printing into England. Over 80 volumes are still attached by chain to the shelves, preventing their loan or theft.

The Royal Grammar School of Guildford, England is home to one of the only remaining “chained libraries” in a school. Before the official public library system of lending began, chained libraries existed in schools and cathedrals, usually set up against a wall with desks that surrounded the shelves for the patrons to use.
The Royal Grammar School in Guilford, England (built in the 1500s). All the books are chained to the shelves...might adopt this security system in my office.

“I think I've discovered the secret of life -- you just hang around until you get used to it.”  ― Charles M. Schulz
Sad, but this is what I thought when I saw the library. I couldn't even see the point of the rest of the movie. It was just so obvious. I mean, I would have chucked it all for the library...I wonder if that would have counted as loving him though? ;D

The Digital Scriptorium is a growing image database of medieval and renaissance manuscripts that unites scattered resources from many institutions into an international tool for teaching and scholarly research. It bridges the gap between a diverse user community and the limited resources of libraries by means of sample imaging and extensive rather than intensive cataloguing.
