Thank you to those of you who managed to come to the public meeting. We are compiling suggestions made at the meeting and those sent to us through the email contact address.
firstname.lastname@example.org Keep those suggestions coming because it is important to know what the community wants from the library and public space that we hope to be able to create. Input from the community is vital if the space is truly going to meet the needs of everyone. And think visionary too!
Thank you to Graham for letting us have the meeting in the church, your support is valued.
This was enjoyed by those that attended and the event raised over £800 towards the running of the library. One of the speakers suggested that it would be wonderful if we could manage to read a poem aloud on the tube. I’ll be interested to know if anyone tries this and also interested in the reaction of fellow passengers.
Thanks must go to the actors and others who gave of their time to make this event the success that it was and to Rachael for organising it. Thank you also to Raymond for taking photos of the event.
We have had a request to do one again and hope to have another in the autumn, dare we to hope in the library?
Mark Twain Legacy lives!
Jacques Lamarre from the Mark Twain House and Museum in Connecticut, USA has written a great letter in support of the library and you can read it on the website www.savekensalriselibrary.org
Petition to All Souls
The online petition is here and it would be great if you could sign it and circulate it to your friends:
Thank you to Jodi for organising this.
If you would like to volunteer at the pop-up library, there is a whiteboard rota fixed to the wall of the pop-up library where you can sign up (and there should be a whiteboard pen attached!)
We also have an online rota where you can sign up for time at the weekends:
Any help that you can give with the pop-up library is much appreciated. It is is an important symbol of our desire to run a library inside the building and it’s also useful for people who want to borrow books or catch up on news about the campaign. It would be great to have a good presence at the pop-up over the summer, so that anyone looking round the building will see the pop-up library in action outside and also know that this community is still serious about having our library.
We have had so many donation of books but we cannot take any more at the moment. If you could hang on to them for a while we will let you know when you can bring them to the library.
