The British Library quotes that they hold "14 million books, 920,000 journal and newspaper titles, 58 million patents, 3 million sound recordings, and so much more" (The British Library Website).

The British Library is UK's national library which houses a collection of over 150 millions covering a wide range of discplines and various formats. As well as the reading rooms, galleries and exhibitions, there are cafes and restaurants.

It's free to enter although everyone is subject to a security search.

The purpose of my visit was to visit the "Evolving English, One Language, Many Voices", an English Language Exhibition (12 November 2010 to 3 April 2011). I thoroughly enjoyed the exhibition and took me half a day to see everything there and a lot of it compliments my English Lanugage Module I'm studying at the moment)
