The London Library magazine is a fascinating compendium of information about the Library and our members. Each issue includes articles about the Library, our history, collection, and archives. We also interview some of our most well-known and fasinating members, exploring their work/research and, where applicable, how the Library impacts their working lives or informs their reading habits.  

All memberships include a print subscription to the The London Library magazine.
