Here are some questions from the Friends of Carnegie Library to the Community Hub Project Group about the options appraisal, with the Project Group’s answers.
The questions arose from an initial discussion meeting of the Friends on 30 July 2014. The Friends submitted them on 7 August and received replies on 19 August.
QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
The Project Group thanks all volunteers for helping to deliver around 10,000 newsletters in Herne Hill ward and parts of Village and South Camberwell wards. This has been a great effort by local people, with the exercise being completed in under three weeks! Particular thanks go to the Friends for their contribution as many came forward to help. The newsletter has been well received in the area with positive responses and offers of help coming in on the ‘getinvolved’ email address. We are in the process of contacting these people to explore how best to take up their offers of help. A Big Thank You everyone !

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]
