The Reading for Pleasure Collection

Located next to the help desk on the first floor.

The library has a reading-for-pleasure section created with student choices. In 2018, Birkbeck Students compiled a list of their favourite books to be added to the collection. This was made possible by the Birkbeck alumni fund and was launched on the 31st of January 2019. Over the past few years there have been many additions added, most recently on the 5th of May 2023. You can find a full list of the available books HERE.


Reading for Health and Wellbeing Corner

Located on the second floor in the silent study area.

The New Well-being Corner is located in the Silent Study area on the second floor of the library. It's an area for students to relax, take a break and reflect. It includes lots of handouts & books to support your health and wellbeing which have been recommended by the Birkbeck wellbeing services. Remember you can always borrow any of these books at any time. Finally, the comfy seating and box of sensory toys are there for you to use.
