The Next Chapter for the Carnegie Library
An exciting new project has been launched 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. Driving forward this project will require lots of energy, ideas, skills and, above all, community support. So, as a first step a newsletter needs to be delivered throughout Herne Hill. Public consultation will then start in the Autumn on the architects’ options for the configuration of the space within the building.
Do you have an hour or two to spare to help with the delivery of these Newsletters? If so, please contact Carol Boucher on [email protected] or 020 7274 3176 / 07831 806573. All offers of help will be much appreciated and if you would like to assist the project further do register your interest at [email protected]
