Helping us open up a world of inspiration and ideas for everyone.

Thank you to our supporters

Opening up a world of ideas: Our supporters and partners celebrates the impact of philanthropy at the Library, showcasing the achievements made possible thanks to the generosity of our wonderful supporters.

Donations transform our collection into a source of inspiration, a place to learn and a world of escapism. This year, we’ve helped entrepreneurs make their ideas a reality. We’ve brought beloved characters and untold stories to life. We’ve welcomed learners of all ages to our exhibitions, events, and creative programmes. All of this exciting activity has only been possible thanks to philanthropic support.

I hope you enjoy reading about the incredible difference our community of supporters has made. With your help, our collection has continued to grow and has been explored and enjoyed by curious minds around the world.

Thank you for helping us to be a Library for everyone.
