Dame Lynne Brindley


Lynne Brindley, Chief Executive of the British Library, joins Helen Mirren and Judi Dench as a Dame of the British Empire. This recognition is for ‘services to education’ in the UK New Year honours list. This is great news for Lynne, the British Library and UK libraries generally.

The success of the British Library, the UK’s largest public building of the 20th century, has brought the title of dame for Lynne Brindley, its chief executive, and a knighthood for John Ashworth, former director of the London School of Economics and vice-chancellor of Salford University, who chaired the board.
