The Library

Middle Temple Library provides legal reference services to members of all four Inns of Court.

The Library holds approximately 250,000 volumes covering all aspects of British, European and American law. We have an enquiry service staffed by specialist legal librarians, who are able to help with enquiries made in person or by telephone or email.

We also provide a document delivery service which is available to all legal practitioners.

The full range of our collections can be searched via our online catalogue.

The Library operates Monday - Friday, 9:00am to 7:00pm, but occasionally may have to adjust its opening hours for events and talks, so please check our opening hours page for the most recent information.
