FNL subscriptions start at £52 per year - or just £1 a week - and FNL members receive a variety of benefits: 

  • The Annual Report, with its scholarly essays on all acquisitions supported during the year.
  • Six or more FNL visits to libraries, archives and specialist institutions and other events that are organised from time to time.
  • The chance to join us at the AGM, which is followed by a lecture from a noted author, historian or scholar.
  • A number of institutions we have supported also offer concessions and other benefits to FNL members.
  • But the major benefit of FNL membership is the knowledge that you are helping to save countless nationally and internationally significant manuscripts, collections, rare books and fine bindings for the nation
