The General Committee of Trustees is elected from and by the membership. The Library has 46,000 volumes in the lending section covering a range of subjects including Marx, Engels, Lenin, the Spanish Civil War and the History of Socialism and the British Labour Movement.

The reference collection has an extensive holding of journals dating from the 1850's. These include The Red Republican (published 1st English translation of Marx and Engel's Communist Manifesto), Votes for Women (the Suffragette Journal) and Commonweal (William Morris); 43,000 pamphlets and many original materials and books, many of which are unavailable elsewhere.

Our building has been in a state of continuous redevelopment.
