We are delighted to announce that Her Majesty The Queen will be continuing her support of The London Library and taking on its Patronage.

Her Majesty The Queen is a passionate promoter of Literacy in the UK and internationally, with particular focus on encouraging a love of reading and writing from an early age. The Queen’s Reading Room, the charity and book club of Her Majesty The Queen, celebrates and promotes the power and benefits of reading, helping more people find and connect with books which enrich their lives.

For the Library, Her Majesty The Queen’s endorsement will strengthen our efforts to inspire, support and promote the creation and sharing of knowledge and ideas through reading, writing and discussion, and help to establish the Library as the home of literary inspiration.

We are grateful to have had support from Her Majesty The Queen since 2012 in which she served as London Library Vice-Patron and hosted events with the Library. We look forward to her continued support over the coming years.
