The Arab British Centre library is a public borrowing library. Formerly a private collection put together over the past 40 years.

We organise and promote cultural and artistic events, and host a community of like-minded resident organisations at our central London premises.

Our meeting room is in the heart of the City of London and can be hired for use by registered organisations, societies and NGOs associated with Arab-British issues.
