We will also display archives and rare collections, bring public, performers and academics together, and create a new hospitality venue with a riverside vista.
In November 2008 private collector John Wolfson pledged his priceless collection of early play texts, including Shakespeare quarto and first folio editions, to Shakespeare’s Globe where they will be stored and accessed in the new Library.
