Make a difference. Adopt a book.

Many of the books in The Portico Library's 19th-century collection are in urgent need of repair or rebinding, and hold insights and information seldom available elsewhere. It is vital that these items are preserved for future generations to learn from and enjoy, and you can contribute by sponsoring their repair.

Anyone can help maintain The Portico Library's unique collection of rare and important books, illustrations and archives. Just get in touch to arrange a viewing, choose which items you want to save and make your donation. In return, you'll receive a commemorative plate in the front of the newly repaired volume to memorialise your contribution, either in your name, or on behalf of a loved one.
