Support Us

The Library is a registered charity and receives no government funding or statutory grants: members' subscriptions together with generous donations and bequests are therefore vital to its survival and development.



Endowment funds are invested to provide a useful and growing annual income for the Library while maintaining their long-term capital value in real terms, to reach a suitable balance between present and future needs

We are delighted that London Library Vice President Lewis Golden has led the way with an extremely generous donation of £250,000, permanently establishing the Jacqueline Golden Endowment in memory of his late wife. The income from this endowment will support the Library's activities in perpetuity.

The Library is actively seeking donors who may wish to donate to support our general charitable purposes; to pooled funds within areas of Library activity such as acquisition or conservation; or those who may wish to donate to a fund named after an individual or subject area.
