Filming in the Library

Film and television production crews should contact us in advance to make arrangements for filming in the National Library building. Some filming will require staff supervision.

Filming in the Reading Rooms during public opening hours is not permitted. Please contact us to arrange filming outside of these hours.

Hourly filming fees apply for the filming that requires staff supervision.
