Support Gladstone's Library
Friends of Gladstone's Library
We hope that you enjoy using our facilities and will consider supporting our work - and securing the Library's future - by becoming a Friend.
Despite attracting more people than ever before, the last few years have posed severe economic challenges to Gladstone's Library. We, like many institutions, have had to cut costs and return to our core values. Hard decisions have had to be taken to secure the future of this unique institution. The Library has, for many years, relied on investment income from previous generations to subsidise rates for clergy and scholars but the recent recession has depleted this vital source of income.
It now falls to us – the present generation of users and custodians of Gladstone’s generous gift – to secure its future. We are asking everyone who has benefited from the Library to consider making a regular gift to help us keep Gladstone’s vision of a residential library alive and well in the twenty-first century.
