Maughan Library
The facade and great gate entrance certainly evoke the Harry Potter feel to the place but wait till you see an exhibition at the Weston Room of the Maughan Library, a rather legitimate excuse for the public to be be given the permission to enter this private and exclusive university library. The seemingly 'floating fires' of the chandeliers and 'sleeping guards' of the 16th and 17th century tomb monuments of the Weston Room all provide an atmosphere reminiscent of the brand of movie series some of our generation have strong affections for. The stained glasses illustrating the coat of arms of the previous Master of the Rolls and the mosaic tiles on the floor all add to that Harry Potter-ish feel of the place. As a matter of fact, the history of the place (before it got converted -- to critical acclaim -- into a prestigious university library) stretch back as far as the early 13th century, when it (or whatever's left of it) served as a 'Domus Conversorum'. Maughan Library is certainly worth a visit if you happen to pass by.   Opening Hours  3 January 2019 - 8 September 2019 Franklin-Wilkins Library, Waterloo campus, closed 8 - 9 June.   New Hunts House Library, Guys campus, closed 15 - 16 June.  Maughan Library, Strand campus, closed 29 - 30 June.   Archives Reading Room, Strand Campus, closed for stocktaking from Monday 9 to Friday 13 September 2019, open as usual on Tuesday 17 September.   HOW TO FIND US...

The London Library
The London Library  The London Library is one of the world's great lending libraries, with an amazing collection of over 1 million books, and an equally extraordinary history. Behind its elegant facade overlooking St. James's Square is a vast network of books, where since the mid-nineteenth century, seven buildings have been brought into one and a great centre of learning. These tours are an amazing opportunity to learn about the history and architecture of the building from an experienced guide, and see some of the treasures from the collection up close. The London Library is a must-visit for literature enthusiasts. The bad news is that it's a private lending library, and you can't just walk in off the street. The good news is that they offer free tours one evening per month, and you can book free tickets through Eventbrite. These tours are an amazing opportunity to learn about the history and architecture of the building from an experienced guide, and see some of the treasures from the collection up close.   NEW OPENING HOURS Our evening opening arrangements for Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays have now changed.  On Monday and Tuesday evenings members will be able to use the Library until 9pm. On Wednesday evenings the Library will normally close at 5.30pm to help support evening venue hire which is an important source of income for us. On many occasions, however, we will be able to stay open until 9pm as often public events are sufficiently self-contained that they can be hosted in the first floor reading rooms without restricting member access to other parts of the Library. Where this is the case, the Library - with the exception of the Reading Room, Writers' Room and Sackler Study - will remain open to members until 9pm.  We will provide regular updates in advance on this website page and via our monthly newsletters about the Wednesday dates where we are able to offer later opening hours .
The Wiener Library
The Wiener Library is one of the world's leading and most extensive archives on the Holocaust and Nazi era. Formed in 1933, the Library's unique collection of over one million items includes published and unpublished works, press cuttings, photographs and eyewitness testimony. The Library traces its roots back to Germany in the 1920s. Dr Alfred Wiener, a German Jew, having fought in WWI, returned to Germany in 1919 and was horrified at the surge of right-wing antisemitism, which blamed Jews for the defeat. Dr Wiener worked with the Central Association of German Citizens of Jewish Faith to combat antisemitism, writing, lobbying and speaking publicly. From 1925 (the year Hitler published Mein Kampf) he perceived a greater threat from the Nazi Party than any other antisemitic group or party. Under his influence an archive was started just to collect information about the Nazis, which formed the basis of campaigns to undermine their activities. Dr Wiener and his family fled Germany in 1933 and settled in Amsterdam. Dr Wiener's first archive is believed to have been destroyed. Later that year he set up the Jewish Central Information Office at the request of the Board of Deputies of British Jews and the Anglo-Jewish Association. The JCIO essentially continued the work of the earlier archive. Following the November Pogrom of 1938, Wiener prepared to bring his collection to the UK. It arrived the following summer and is believed to have opened on the day the Nazis invaded Poland. Throughout the War the JCIO served the British Government as it fought the Nazi regime. Increasingly the collection was referred to as ‘Dr Wiener's Library' and eventually this led to its renaming. Post-war, the Library assisted the prosecutors at the Nuremberg Trial, amassed early survivor testimony and helped to shape the emerging academic study of the Holocaust. Today, the collection is among the largest and most respected in the world and continues to grow. In 2011 it moved to new premises in Russell Square and began a programme funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund to improve access and open its collections to the widest possible audience.
