World's largest social sciences library takes part in Open House

Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 September, 1-5pm
Library, Lionel Robbins Building

The world's largest social sciences library, the Library of the London School of Economics and Political Science will open its doors to members of the public as part of London Open House weekend on Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 September.

London Open House weekend provides public access, completely free of charge, to buildings of architectural and community interest across the capital. The Library of LSE will specially open as part of this weekend to visitors from 1-5pm on both the Saturday and Sunday.

The Library's imaginative interior re-development (designed by architects Foster and Partners) provides modern, internationally competitive learning and research facilities. An atrium and dome maximise natural light, while a central spiral ramp, glass lifts and open layout ease circulation between IT facilities, books and study spaces.

This year, Archives will be open as part of Archives Awareness Month. The exhibition is titled

'The Heart's Heat: love and hate in the LSE Archives'.
