We are an independent charity with only one task - running the Library for our community. We receive no support for running costs from Camden or other branches of Government. Only our community can support us and without that we will close. Currently the library costs us £250 a day to keep open.

Remember the Library and Leave a Legacy

Would you consider giving us a legacy in your will? If you love our library, you can pass this love on to future generations by helping us secure our future. One way that you could do this, would be to leave us a legacy.

Your bequest will ensure that the library continues to serve our community, so that children may learn to love stories and books, then study in a quiet safe place, who knows, even write a book at one of our desks!

And we can bring great writers and actors and poets in person to our much loved library in the evenings, making affordable world class cultural events easily accessible to less mobile residents.

The library is run by volunteers so all the money we raise goes directly towards keeping the library open.

There is no need to rewrite your will. It is very simple to make a codicil. The two main types of gift through your Will are Pecuniary and Residuary legacies.

  • Pecuniary legacy is a gift of a specific sum of money in your Will, like £1,000
  • Residuary legacy is a share of your estate (or the whole of your estate) after any specific amounts have been taken away

But you don’t have to have a lot of money to leave a legacy. We are grateful for anything you can spare. Even a small amount will buy some books!

It is really very easy to do. We can provide some wording but we do recommend that you get legal advice to make sure what’s best for you, or we can introduce you to a local solicitor.

If you would like to discuss a legacy, call us on 0207 431 1266 and we will call you back.
