Marx Memorial Library Flood Appeal

Call for financial support

Marx Memorial Library Flood Appeal –

£50k for Lenin’s 150th birthday 

Following the devastating flood in September 2019, help us

Restore, Protect and Transform Marx House


On 24 Sept MML suffered a devastating flood.

Problems with our flat roof and drainage system meant water gushed through our storerooms.


This has given impetus to an urgent programme of works to 

Restore: undertake remedial work on the roof and drainage system

Protect: enhance the conservation, secyrurt and storage of our archives

Transform: create a new restricted fund for further redevelopment of our historic building centred on increasing capacity and improving access


What better way to mark the 150th birthday in April 2020 of the great revolutionary VI Lenin who has such integral ties to our building than to help us raise funds to ensure 37a Clerkenwell Green is fit for the 21st century?


All donors will be invited to a birthday celebration and thank you event.
