Adopt a Book

You can adopt a new book to be added to one of the Library's unique catalogue subjects, or a favourite book from the Library’s collection, and a bookplate will be placed inside the selected volume recording the adoption. 

Adopt a new book as a gift: £40

Each year The London Library develops the collection with over 6,000 new books, and you can help support this expansion by adopting a new book. You can choose to adopt a book to be added to one of the Library's unique catalogue subjects: Art, Biography, Fiction and Literature, History, Religion, Science and Miscellaneous, or Topography. 

The £40 gift package includes:

  • The recipient’s name on a bookplate inside a new book, in one of the subjects of interest above
  • A London Library Christmas card for your own personal message
  • A private tour of the Library for the recipient and a guest with the opportunity to see the bookplate in situ

Adopt a favourite book as a gift: £125

Whether it's a book by a favourite author, about a memorable place, on a special subject close to your heart, or simply a book that is special to you - adopting a favourite book allows you to choose a specific volume from our collection. Your donation will enable us to conserve our most borrowed and loved books, prolonging their life for current members and generations to come. 

Search the Library's catalogue for the book you'd like to adopt. Or if you're looking for Christmas inspiration, we've put together a list of our recommended books - because of their regular use by members, our most borrowed and loved books are the ones most often in need of conservation.

The £125 gift package includes:

  • The recipient’s name on a bookplate inside a chosen favourite book from the Library's collection
  • A London Library Christmas Card for your personal message
  • A private tour of the Library for the recipient and a guest with the opportunity to see the bookplate in situ

Please note: To make sure your gift pack is delivered in time for Christmas, please make your adoption before midday on 21 December.
