With more than one million books and periodicals in over 50 languages, the collection includes works from the 16th century to the latest publications in print and electronic form.


The London Library’s annual Summer Party, hosted by President Tom Stoppard, has become an established and much loved feature of the capital’s cultural scene. This year, guests enjoyed readings from Vanessa Redgrave, Eleanor Bron and Griff Rhys Jones. Packed with familiar faces - from Simon Schama to Emilia Fox, Tim Rice to Sheila Hancock, Sara Waters to Emma Dickens - the event was a great way to celebrate the summer!
