Community & Tours
Here at The Wiener Library we’re committed to engaging communities with our unique collections. Our mission is to provide the opportunity for people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds to learn about the history of the Holocaust and genocide in a supportive environment.
We’re always seeking to build relationships with local and international groups and to introduce new audiences to our collections. Throughout the year offer a range of skills workshops, guided tours, evening events and more for our community audience.
In addition, we also offer the following activities for free (unless otherwise stated). Book in advance by contacting the Library’s Learning team at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the Library on 020 7636 7247.
Group Tours and Talks
We offer private tours of the Library’s temporary exhibition, basement archives and Reading Room for groups of up to 25 people.
We offer talks of 1 hour on a topic of your choice, including a question and answer session, for up to 35 people in a learning room at the Library. Refreshments can be provided for a small fee.
We offer talks by a staff member of approximately 1 hour, including a question and answer session, on a topic of your choice at your venue. The only cost incurred is the speaker’s travel expenses.
We are always looking for people and organisations to partner on projects with. Some examples of past projects include a student exhibition project with Aegis Students and a creative writing workshop for refugees in partnership with Exiled Writers Ink. If you would like to partner with us on a special event or project, please get in touch.
The Wiener Library is bringing together for the first time a new group of grandchildren of Holocaust survivors and refugees. The group met for the first time in June 2014 and have since met for a genealogy workshop. The date for the next group meeting will be posted soon.
If you would like to join the group or be put on the mailing list to receive updates please contact our Learning team at email@example.com.
