The Annual Report for the year 1952/53 noted a milestone in the history of the National Central Library. On 20th June the reconstruction of the Library, which had been largely destroyed in 1941, was celebrated by a formal reopening ceremony, performed by Lord Elgin, and attended by many friends and supporters. The work of the Library could once more proceed without the inconveniences of divided premises and the noise and dust of the previous twenty‐one months.
