Author Gabriel Gbadamosi and the Mayor of Lambeth, Councillor Donatus Anyanwu, will be officially opening the new library at 11am on Monday 1 June.

There will be light refreshments as well as activities. Come down and have a browse at the great selection of books available for loan. Join Author Gabriel Gbadamosi and the Mayor of Lambeth, Councillor Donatus Anyanwu, for storytelling and rhyme time, whilst sipping on a cup of tea and grabbing a piece of cake at the local community café.

This event allows Tulse Hill’s very own residents to discover more books to read and share on their doorstep.

More information about the pop-up library

The library will be at the “Old Scout Hut” 4 High Trees, SW2 3PU every Monday (excluding Bank Holidays) between 9.30am to 12.30pm.

A wide selection of books will be available each week. Books can also be requested from any Lambeth library for collection.

For your own convenience, the new library will also enable you to return books borrowed from any other Lambeth library.

Storytelling and rhyme activities will also be provided each week for under-fives from 10am.

Providing new services

Community organisations have come together with local residents, Metropolitan Housing Trust and the Lambeth Library Service to make this possible.

The service will be managed jointly by High Trees Community Partnership and Lambeth Libraries, and staffed by volunteers.

Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods Councillor Jane Edbrooks, said: “the changes we’re making to Lambeth Library Services, while being driven by cuts to council budgets, are also allowing local organisations and communities to drive change in their local area and deliver new services.”
