Where friends are always welcome

The Sterling Library of English literature is one of the outstanding collections at Senate House Library. Its founder, Sir Louis Sterling, collected in the spirit of sharing, as this New Year card, sent by him and his wife to their friends and family in 1932, shows.

A handsome picture of the library in the Sterlings’ London home at Primrose Hill, before its move to Senate House, bears the caption: Where friends are always welcome. This is a fitting tag for our new site, which seeks both to share news and to provide a window onto our historic and special collections.
