Marx Memorial Library

Category: Clerkenwell
Business profile: Since our foundation in 1933 we’ve been at the heart of the British labour movement advancing education, knowledge and learning in all aspects of the science of Marxism, the history of socialism and the working class.

The Library is home to a unique collection of published and archival sources on related subjects including the trade unionism, peace and solidarity movements and the Spanish Civil War. Its reading room is open Monday-Thursday 12-4.

The Library’s education programme – online and onsite – examines subjects ranging from Marxist political economy to Socialist art. The Library itself is a historic building rooted in Clerkenwell’s radical tradition. Displays from the collections can be viewed on bi-weekly tours of the building and the Main Hall is available for hire. The Library is a charity, financed by members and affiliates.
