Transforming Kentish Town Library - Ideas Day

Residents are invited to Kentish Town Library on Wednesday 14 August for an Ideas Day to help shape the next steps for the transformation of the library.

Camden Council is investing £1.5 million to make sure that libraries best meet the needs of our communities now and in the future:

This work is being piloted in Kentish Town Library, where over the last few months the Council has been talking to local residents, library users and partner organisations about their ideas for the library. The Ideas Day aims to share initial design ideas developed from these conversations, and get residents’ help in choosing the ideas to take forward and make happen:

Wednesday 14 August, Kentish Town Library

3-4.30pm: Family workshop for children, parents and carers
5-6.30pm: Ideas workshop – everyone welcome
4-6pm: Drop in digital roadshow showcase – test new technology for libraries, including a virtual reality headset, a 3D printer, tablets, robots, e-newspapers, new PCs and self-service kiosks

The Council’s investment will build on the great work that libraries already do for our local communities, providing spaces for lifelong learning, working and bringing people together. The Council is committed to keeping libraries open and thriving, and the investment will give everyone access to high quality digital services and help to make sure no resident gets left behind as part of our Camden 2025 vision.

Discussions for transforming other Camden libraries will begin over the coming months, and there will be many more opportunities to get involved.
