Ivy Gutridge Resource Centre

Photo of Ivy Gutridge

            Ivy Gutridge was the Secretary and leading light of what was then the Wolverhampton Inter-Faith Group in the early 1980s.  When she died in 2004, she left the organisation a legacy of several thousand pounds.  The bequest was originally set aside with a view to using it to help to purchase a suitable building for IFW’s activities.  However, this proved to be unrealistic, and in 2009 the Board decided to use the funds to establish and develop, in partnership with the Central Library, a special Inter-Faith Resource Centre, composed of books and DVDs, to be located within the Faith section on the first floor of the Library.  The Resource Centre was officially opened, on a cold and snowy January morning in 2010, in the presence of Dr. Harriet Crabtree, the Director of the National Inter-Faith Network.

The stock of books and DVD’s held by the Library is continually being increased.
