Who we are

Community library created after the closure of the Garden Suburb Library by the LB Barnet in April 2012, run now entirely by volunteers

The HGS Residents Association and many members of the local community in 2011 campaigned to prevent the closure by the London Borough of Barnet of the little Hampstead Garden Suburb Library in the Market Place. The campaign was successful, and within just a few days of the borough librarians being redeployed to other libraries in April 2012, Garden Suburb Community Library opened its doors to readers again, this time in the hands of about 30 volunteers who have been trained to run it.

The library has since then gone from strength to strength, with over 2800 registered users, children’s activities twice a week, a monthly book club, and occasional author talks and one-off children’s events.

Books are constantly replenished and a team of volunteers has £5,000 to spend annually on adult and children’s books

The library is a registered company and charity and is supervised by 7 trustees.

Charity No: 1149211
