LSE Library Late: celebrating The Women's Library

 
  6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
 Free

Join us for a Library Late, a free and public celebration of the 10-year anniversary of The Women’s Library Reading Room!  

The Women’s Library is the oldest and largest library in Britain devoted to the history of women’s campaigning and activism.  

It has had many homes and many names. It was renamed the Fawcett Library in 1953 in memory of Millicent Garrett Fawcett and then The Women’s Library in 2002. 

In 2013, The Women’s Library moved to LSE and with the opening of The Women's Library Reading Room in the following year, we have welcomed many researchers, artists, academics, activists and more over the last 10 years!  

Come and find out about how we collect, digitise, catalogue and how you can use the collection to inspire your own research, art and other activities.

During this free evening open to the public, we will be celebrating with...  

  • archives on display from The Women's Library collection
  • behind-the-scenes tours of LSE Library Archives (pre-reg coming soon)
  • behind-the-scenes tours of LSE Library Digitisation Suite to see how collections are processed for online use (pre-reg coming soon)
  • a drop-in art activity with Nadina Ali inspired by the archives
  • a drinks reception and opportunities to meet our partner organisations

Partner organisations you can meet on the day:
  • The Feminist Library
  • Liberating Histories
  • Greenham Women Everywhere
  • East End Women’s Museum
  • Tower Hamlets Archives
  • History of Women’s Liberation (HOWL)
  • FLA (Feminist and Women’s Libraries and Archives) Network


Stay tuned for more information on how to register for behind-the-scenes tours.

The British Library of Political and Economic Science (@LSELibrary) was founded in 1896, a year after the London School of Economics and Political Science. It has been based in the Lionel Robbins Building since 1978 and houses many world class collections, including the Women's Library and Hall-Carpenter Archives.
