Dodderidgian Library

The Dodderidgian Library (Latin: Bibliotheca Doddridgiana) was founded in 1667 in Barnstaple, North Devon, England, by Judith Dodderidge, third wife and widow of John Dodderidge (1610–1659) of Barnstaple and Bremridge, South Molton, MP. It represents one of the earliest town libraries in England which continues in existence since its foundation.
