How to support us

There's something for everyone at the British Library. You can research and enjoy our collection of over 150 million items including manuscripts, maps and music. Every year we conserve over 1,500 items for you to explore through our Reading Rooms, exhibitions and digital resources. From a single donation to a lifetime as a Patron, there are many ways you can support us and experience the Library's wonders and treasures.
