About

The American Trust for the British Library is a not-for-profit organization whose purpose is to promote and support the work of one of the world’s greatest research libraries.  The ATBL seeks to promote transatlantic understanding through related events, lectures, and discussion in the USA and the UK, as well as providing incremental financial and gifts-in-kind support for the British Library’s collecting, preservation and outreach activities. The Trust was founded in 1979 and is supported through the generosity of its increasingly wide membership in the United States and the United Kingdom.

Supporters from the US can make a tax-deductible gift to the American Trust for the British Library, a registered 501(c)(3) organization. The Trust raises funds to support acquisitions, conservation, and other important projects, and those giving $100 or more enjoy an attractive package of benefits.

Recent grants have supported the Library’s Conservation Center, an art history internship for a PhD candidate from Harvard University, and the Eccles Center for American Studies.
