“If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need.”

                                                                                     Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43 BC)

Bromley House Library, founded 1816, is a flourishing independent lending library situated in the centre of Nottingham, one of the few remaining subscription libraries in the country. The library houses around 40,000 books and has a tranquil and unstuffy atmosphere. There are many fine reading rooms spread over three floors of a Grade II* listed Georgian townhouse.  In addition there is a beautiful walled garden, one of only two in the city centre. 

The library is a pleasant place to read or work.We welcome applications for membership and there are plenty of opportunities to visit us.
