Leave a legacy

By leaving a gift to the British Library in your Will, you will continue to make a difference to the world’s knowledge in years to come.

Legacies are greatly appreciated and carefully used: you can be assured that we will follow your wishes as closely as we can.

Recent legacies to the British Library have had a tremendous impact, enabling us to make acquisitions of music manuscripts that we would never otherwise have been able to purchase; providing much-needed funds for our conservation programme; and endowing an expert curator post.

If you are considering leaving a gift in your Will to the British Library and would like to discuss options or would like more information, please contact the Development Office on 020 7412 7155 or joanna.wells@bl.uk
