BeFriend a Book

Help preserve our shared printed heritage

The programme is a practical way for readers to help sustain works in Senate House Library for posterity. It is an ideal gift to commemorate birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, and other significant events.

The Friends of Senate House Library will be relaunching the BeFriend a Book scheme in June 2017.

The scheme will provide readers with the opportunity to support the conservation of specific works that the Library have determined are in most need of help and restoration. 

More information will be made available about how you can support the scheme in June 2017, but if you would like to learn more before then, please contact Lindsay Triggs (Regular Giving Manager) at or +44 (0) 20 7863 1340.
