This month

Monday 20 April:  Annual General Meeting.

Don’t miss this important event when Susanna Barnes, Head of Lambeth Libraries, will talk to us about the latest proposals for the running of Lambeth Libraries, including the Durning.  These proposals are far-reaching and, as they stand, are likely to lead to the loss of any decent library service in Kennington.  Come and hear what is on the cards, and what your Committee is doing about it.  Constructive ideas always welcome!

Susanna will talk from about 7.10 until 7.45 pm, and the AGM itself will start at 7.50pm.

Do bring your £3.00 subscription as well as your usual £2.00 donation.

AGM papers will be issuing at the end of March.

Events are normally held on the third Monday evening in the month.

6.45 for 7.15pm at the Durning Library.  Light refreshments. Everyone welcome.

No admission charge, but a £2 donation towards costs is invited.

FUNDRAISING FOR THE FRIENDS OF THE DURNING LIBRARY

After the very successful Table Top Sale on 14 June, where we raised over £250, thanks mainly to Cathy Preece and the Kennington Companions, Cathy has kindly offered to continue selling unwanted books, CDs, DVDs, Blue Rays and Amazon games to help raise funds for us. Please make every effort to support this, either by bringing your donations to the blue bin in the Library or delivering to Cathy direct.  Please contact KenningtonCompanions@gmail.com if you wish to do that or have any questions .

DO PLEASE CONTINUE TO DONATE

IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM

After James Taylor’s fascinating talk on 17 November, many will be shocked to learn that government cuts to IWM could mean 80 job losses, curtailing schools visits and – incredibly – dismantling the library.
