Carnegie Pop Up Consultation Report

Lambeth Council and GLLheld an exhibition about their plans for the Carnegie Library on 21st-22nd June.

At the same time, the local community hosted a Pop Up Carnegie Library in Ruskin Park provided reading, a book swap, craft activities, chess club, panel discussions, free cake and good conversation. Thanks to all who came along. We had a lovely time.

Outside the Carnegie Occupation on Day 3

During Saturday afternoon (April 2nd), crowds swelled in support of Carnegie Library protesters who have occupied the library since Thursday evening. There was a photocall at 5pm for the demo crowd outside the library on Herne Hill Road - the largest crowd thus far. Anyone inside the library needing to leave was not allowed back in by police or security hired by Lambeth, so they later joined a crowd buoyed by folk music from The No Frills Band and passing cars beeping to local painter Wendy Sullivan flashing her HOOT FOR LIBRARIES NOW sign.

Volunteers needed to deliver newsletters in Herne Hill/surrounding area for Carnegie

Long discussed, now underway! Efforts have begun to transfer the historic Carnegie Library building in Herne Hill from Lambeth Council to a new charitable trust to run it as a Community Hub. Taking this project forward will require lots of energy, ideas, skills and, above all, community support.  So, as a first step volunteers needed to deliver newsletters throughout Herne Hill and surrounding area!
