We are very grateful to the many people who have generously supported their local library.

We have too many wonderful supporters to list all of them. In addition to those shown below, we are tremendously grateful to the many individuals and local businesses who give their time and money whom we do not identify here.

KCL would like to thank the following local schools for their patronage: Christ Church Primary School, Devonshire House Prep School, Fitzjohns Primary School, Hampstead Hill School, Maria Montessori School, New End School, and University College School (Junior School)

Last, but not least, are all the wonderful speakers and performers who have given so much pleasure to our community and while doing so helped us raise funds to contribute to the running costs of the Library. All gave their time generously and we really appreciate their support.

Honorary Patrons

David Baddiel, Lord Bragg, Simon Callow, Dame Margaret Drabble, Alan Hollinghurst, Anthony Horowitz, Jeremy Karpel, Sir Andrew Motion, Deborah Moggach, Michael Palin, Sue Perkins, Dame Janet Suzman

Hampstead Summer Festival

KCL has been a joint beneficiary of the Hampstead Summer Festival every year from  2013, From Summer 2016, the team was joined by the Hampstead School of Art. It was a pleasure to work with our partners to make the Festivals such a success.

The HSF is our largest single funding source raising £13,500 in 2019. Sadly 2020's Festival was cancelled due to Covid-19 leaving a big hole in our finances.
