Support the Library


Donations are important for the future of Bishopsgate Library. We are pleased to accept relevant donations of books, archival material or other resources from individuals or organisations.

However, space and staffing constraints mean that the Library has to be selective in what can be accepted. Potential donors should be aware that Bishopsgate Library:

  • can only consider material for inclusion if it falls within the scope of Library’s Collection Development Policy 
  • can only consider material without restrictions on subsequent location or timescale for processing or disposal
  • does not normally accept material in poor physical condition
  • cannot normally accept duplicate items 

If you are considering making a donation to the Library, we would welcome the opportunity to discuss this with you.
