Leave a legacy

Collections main photo

By leaving a gift in your will to the British Library, you will continue to help keep a world of inspiration open to everyone.

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

Recent legacies have had a tremendous impact, enabling us to make acquisitions of manuscripts; providing much-needed funds for our conservation programme; and endowing an expert curator post.
