The London Library Reviews
This is an impressing place with collections for all information-nerds. The exibition of old books made me drool, and the small exibitions all seemed promising. The only dull thing was that you needed... more »
Bellissimo posto, si puo vedere la "Magna Carta", e altri libri antichissimi. Veramente bella. La consiglio. more »Beautiful place, you can see the "Magna Carta", and other ancient books. Really beautiful. The Council.
The most excellent library in all of London, and so perhaps the country. This place is like a second home. The level of service that one receives for the price of membership is incredible. I would be happy to pay twice the price that I do. It is an excellent place to work, to read, to relax, etc. The collection is very interesting and one always comes away with books far more useful than could have reasonably been expected. It's possible to keep books for basically an unlimited amount of time, so long as nobody else request them. The staff go above and beyond to do their jobs, and uncommonly in the modern day they use common sense in all things rather than referring to 'policy'. I would recommend anyone involved in any kind of academia in London take up a membership. My only suggestion for improvement is to extend the opening hours. Currently there is a very strange policy where one has to check in advance the opening hours on Wednesdays. I only really go on Mondays and Tuesdays, when the library is open until 21:00. On other days, it closes at 17:30, which means coming out of the serene library into rush hour in central London. Even being open until 18:30 or 19:00 would be immensely better for me. However I understand that (like everything) the library is finding ways to cut running costs so that I understand that this may not be an option.
A little bit eerie because of old books, but definitely be loved by bookworms/book lovers because of miles of miles of books to read.
