DLD College London marked the official opening of their new library this week on the 7th March on World Book Day. The guest of honour Philip Marshall, the Director of the London Library, cut the ribbon and announced the library to be officially open.
Mr Marshall addressed the students and staff alike about the important role libraries play in the cultural life of a country, before presenting Anna, a Year 12 student, with annual membership of the London Library, in recognition of her outstanding academic progress in English, Classical Civilization and History of Art.
DLD College London also welcomed back Russell Frost who runs Hooksmith Press, a letterpress print and design company based in the east end of London. During the morning, Russell was based in the college’s atrium to show students how to hand-set typeface, roll on ink and operate the press. Many students (and some members of staff) went home with beautiful letterpress prints.
DLD College London is a part of the Abbey DLD Group of Colleges.
