Mount Stewart library secured

The team in Northern Ireland secured almost £100,000 in funding to purchase the important book collection, dating back two centuries from the estate of the late Lady Mairi Bury. The library contains thousands of books on a wide range of subjects, ranging from Lady Londonderry's truly magnificent collection of Irish books and her many books on gardening, architecture, archaeology and mythology which clearly relate to the creation of the inspirational garden at Mount Stewart. The funding for the library collection was secured through a range of donations including The Royal Oak Foundation, The BH Breslauer Foundation, Northern Ireland Museums Council, Friends of the National Libraries, Doreen Burns, Terence and Di Kyle.
