There is a library lecture held each year at New Norcia, the monks host the lecture and usually have a tour of their private library (not open to the public, it's housed in the monastery). I went to the library lecture a few years ago, I found that this years lecture was a bit boring, but it was an interesting. Here are some photos!
The monks use a card catalogue! I doubt many young people have seen one of these!
The loaning system for monks
Part of the library. Bust of Jesus
Mary was on the other side.
Only a tiny part of the library. I don't know how they preserve all of these books in the summer! There are not fans or air conditioners
The view from the library balcony into the monastery courtyard.
The gift shop sells bread made by the monks. I bought some when the shop opened because it sells out quickly!
