“To mark the 25th anniversary of the Jerwood Library, we gather here today to celebrate the sheer creativity and the importance of reading and language,” said Mary Hockaday, the Master of Trinity Hall, as she opened the anniversary ceremony.

Last Friday students, staff, Fellows and friends of the library gathered to mark the important anniversary: highlighting the importance and beauty of the Jerwood Library.

The event was not only a commemoration of the library’s quarter-century milestone but also a platform to recognize and reward student literary talent. The highlight of the evening was the Jerwood Library Creative Writing Competition, where Abby Reeves, a fourth-year French and History undergraduate, emerged victorious with her poignant poem titled ‘Closed for Business.’

Abby was honoured with the task of cutting a specially made 25th-anniversary cake, alongside the Master, after the awards were distributed. The winners also included Emil Cadwaladr Evans, the 1st runner-up, and Rachel Ngai, the 2nd runner-up.
