London Library

The world's largest independent lending library owes its foundation in 1841 to Thomas Carlyle. Early members included Dickens and George Eliot and past presidents and vice-presidents include Isaiah Berlin, T.S. Eliot, Rudyard Kipling, Tennyson and Rebecca West. Over a million books and periodicals covering every aspect of the humanities give readers, writers and researchers the resource of a national reference library for use in their own home or place of work.
