Marx Memorial Library & Workers' School was founded in 1933 with the aim of advancing education, knowledge and learning in all aspects of the science of Marxism, the history of Socialism and the working class movement. At the heart of the British Labour Movement for over eighty years, the Library is home to a unique collection of published and archival sources on related subjects including the trade unionism, peace and solidarity movements and the Spanish Civil War. Its reading room is open Monday-Thursday 12-4. The Library’s education programme – online and onsite – examines subjects ranging from Marxist political economy to Socialist art. The Library itself is a historic building rooted in Clerkenwell’s radical tradition. Displays from the collections can be viewed on bi-weekly tours of the building and the Main Hall is available for hire. The Library is a charity, financed by members and affiliates.

The Russian Social Democratic Labour Party held its first Congress in 1903 in Brussels and then moved to London. The proceedings were chaired by Plekhanov. It was clear from the start that there was a split between two factions - the Bolsheviks (led by Lenin) and the Mensheviks (led by Martov). By 1912 the split was permanent.
