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.
The Prince of Wales Fund, launched by His Royal Highness in February 2016, will help transform FNL's grant giving in perpetuity.
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.
24th February: HRH The Prince of Wales launched the fund in London, over £550,000 has already been raised towards the £1m target
