Friends of South Norwood Library Update

Read-in Protest Outside Library
Saturday 17th April, 11.30am-12.30pm

Reading is powerful. We are staging a ‘Read-in’ protest outside South Norwood Library (the current library building, not the new one) at 11.30am on Saturday. Bring a book (and a cushion!) to take part.

You’ll hear am update from Friends of South Norwood Library and we’ll also have a reading from noted local author Katya Balen. Katya’s debut novel, The Space We’re In, was a Sunday Times Children’s Book of the Week, and shortlisted for the Brandford Boase Award. Her books are aimed at readers aged 9+ so this is definitely a protest the whole family will enjoy!

See you on Saturday.

We are protesting to keep a professionally-run
council-funded library service in South Norwood.
