The Lewes Library Society in the Victorian Period, 1831-97

by Daniel Waley

This article is a continuation of D. Waley and J. Goring, 'Lewes Library Society: the early years, 1785-1831', Sussex Archaeological Collections 138 (2000), 153-64. The Society encountered some financial difficulties in this period and slowly and reluctantly certain organizational changes were achieved, the principal one being the installation of a newsroom in 1857. In 1863 the Library moved as tenant to the newly built Fitzroy Memorial Library. In 1897 the Society was dissolved and the books were transferred to the corporation of Lewes under the terms of the Public Library Acts. This development was typical; except in a few major cities, subscription libraries no longer had a role since they had been superseded by municipal, commercial and academic libraries.
