What’s happening in Camden's libraries?
April is the month for Cityread London, the capital’s annual celebration of literature and enjoyment of reading. This year’s featured title is Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovitch. Check Love Camden for local library events. The book is available to borrow from all of Camden’s libraries, along with other titles in the series.
Ben Aaronovitch is appearing at Swiss Cottage Library Gallery on Saturday 25 April 4-5pm. Book a place on Camden libraries event page.
The future of libraries.
By 2017 Camden’s funding from central government will have been cut in half. With less money available, we will have different ways to deliver our services. We are inviting your ideas on how we can do things differently.
You might have an idea on how we can save money, where we might priortise our resources, or how we can get better value for money for our libraries by getting more people to visit.
Please visit Camden Future Libraries and give us your ideas and comments. (You will need an up-to-date browser.)
