Welcome to the Friends of the National Libraries
The FNL helps not just national libraries but the nation's libraries and collecting institutions, including record offices and museums, to acquire books, manuscripts and archives.
Since 1931 FNL grants have ensured that thousands of books, archives and collections have been saved for the nation. Search our grants database to find out more.
A FNL grant in 2012 enabled Hertfordshire Archives to acquire this atlas of 15 estate maps, 1698-1773,with contemporaneous tables of reference and terriers.
The Prince of Wales Fund, launched by His Royal Highness in February 2016, will help transform FNL's grant giving in perpetuity.
