About Us

The American Trust for the British Library (ATBL) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that promotes and supports the work of the British Library, one of the world’s greatest research libraries. 

The ATBL seeks to foster transatlantic understanding through events, lectures, and discussion in the United States and in the United Kingdom, as well as through fundraising and incremental financial and gifts-in-kind that help the British Library fulfill its collecting, preservation, and outreach missions.

The ATBL was founded in 1979 and is comprised of generous supporters in the United States and in the United Kingdom. All gifts made by United States supporters to the ATBL are tax-deductible.
