Become a Friend

As a Friend, you will be supporting the continuing acquisition and preservation of The Women’s Library collections and making them available for research and other educational purposes.

Friends play a vital role in promoting and insuring the continued growth and recognition of The Women’s Library. Friends have also played a particularly important role in helping to raise much needed funds to catalogue and conserve archives that are donated to the Library.

Benefits include  regular news of events and developments at The Women’s Library and in the wider world of Women’s History. Friends often organise visits to places and collections of special interest.

In July 2023 we learned that the university post room to which applications for membership were addressed has been, unfortunately, so poorly managed that standing orders, cheques and cash have only just come to light after a period of months and in some cases years. 

We are doing our best to repair the situation, and would be grateful to hear from any of you (or your circle) who think your subscription may have gone astray. 

For the time being – and please spread the word to would-be members! – the procedure for joining will be either to email with a scan of the membership form, duly filled in; or to post a hard copy form to Friends of TWL c/o Summers, 46 West Heath Drive, London NW11 7QH.  

We plan to replace this system with online subscription and a PO Box in 2024.
