On 31st March, the library was scheduled to be closed until 2017. Instead, over 60 occupiers - of all ages - took over the building, and have been there for the last three days. News updates can be found on twitter, hashtag #carnegieoccupation. There has been coverage by the BBC and Financial Times, and support from many other groups. Regular rallies outside the library are being organised in support - note that currently Lambeth is not allowing anyone to enter the building - not even to let children rejoin their parents.
Defend the 10 also has updates on the situation.
There will be a march starting from the Carnegie at 11.30am on Saturday 9th.
The Friends annual Winter Fair will be in the library on Saturday 28th, from 11am to 3pm, featuring all the usual community stalls, arts & crafts stalls, food, games, events, Santa, etc.
