The Library’s 600th anniversary exhibition Lines of Thought has been seen by some 15,000 visitors in its first three months, and we hope to see many more new and repeat visitors over the summer period. We are delighted with the feedback visitors have been leaving; comments cards have been completed by visitors as young as 5 and from as far away as China. Many commenters have identified their personal favourite exhibits, while others give their impressions of the display as a whole.
