The Ladybird Heritage Network is a collaborative partnership established in 2020 by the main institutional collections in the UK – University of Reading Special Collections, Leicestershire County Council and Ladybird Books Limited.

Committed to ensuring the preservation of the heritage of Ladybird Books, the partnership aims to ensure closer collaboration on loans, acquisitions, touring exhibitions, research access and promotional activity.

Working openly and transparently and consulting with our stakeholders, we want the publicly accessible collections to be available to as many people as possible, for research, learning, inspiration and enjoyment.
