The London Library - A Sion College Tour and Reception

Thursday 3rd February 2022, 6.30pm

The London Library, 14 St James’s Square, London SW1Y 4LG

One of the world’s leading literary institutions, the London Library was established in 1841 at a time when there were no lending libraries in London and before state-funded libraries existed. Frustrated by being unable to borrow books in London, Thomas Carlyle began gathering support for a lending library and created a founding committee in April 1840 to oversee the work of raising launch funds.

Sion College has arranged a private tour of the Library, with a reception, a display of some of its treasures, and a talk about the history of this remarkable institution.
