KC library gets revamp

The Kennel Club Library, which receives hundreds of visitors from all over the world each year and houses Europe’s largest collection of canine information sources, has had a revamp to reflect its position as the first port of call for all those wanting to learn more about dogs.

The library provides a new environment, which is both elegant and functional, with added space, while at the same time providing more shelving and facilities to display its extensive collection of books, journals, show catalogues, newspaper articles, stud books and Kennel Club breed records supplements, breed club materials, videos and art.

Open to the public by appointment the Kennel Club Library helps and supports people who have an interest in the world of dogs by offering a range of services from carrying out research requests to answering enquiries about a range of subjects from the history, care of dogs to breeding, training and sports.

Caroline Kisko, Kennel Club Secretary said: "We are really pleased with the refurbishment of the Library, which now provides a more relaxed, elegant, friendly and spacious environment for visitors to carry out their research. We will shortly be providing online access to our catalogues, making the collection more accessible to users. We hope the revamp will encourage many more visitors to take full advantage of the library."

The Kennel Club Library is open to the public by appointment from 9.30am to 4.30pm. Small school and college groups are welcome. For further information, please contact, Gloria Bloomfield, the Kennel Club Library Manager on 0207 518 1009 or email gbloomfield@the-kennel-club.org.uk.
