The Institution Library

In the days when the Institution was still at Abbey House, Westminster, the fact that there was no proper accommodation for the few books which then formed the Library was often sadly commented on by both the Literature Committee and the Council. When, therefore, consideration was being given by the latter body to the proposed Requisition of the premises now forming the Institution's Headquarters in Upper Belgrave Street, one of the inducements put forward by the Committee dealing with the matter was the possibility of being able to realize the ambitions entertained in respect of a Library, as the suggested premises possessed several rooms suitable for such a purpose. Alas; the process of "settling in" in the new building involved many expenses, some expected, others altogether unforeseen but none the less heavy, causing the prospects of a real Library to remain indefinite.
