The Friends of Summertown Library are starting to raise £400,000 to refit your local library for the 21st century. You helped save it in 2011... Please now join us in making it a place to be proud of.
The Council has told us it will have no money for improvements in the foreseeable future. The library has no wi-fi, furnishings are worn out and, despite the best efforts of the staff, it is gradually becoming dreary and outdated.
We want to change that! Summertown deserves a library which meets the best criteria for libraries in the 21st century. The Friends of Summertown Library [Reg. Charity no. 1147612] have created a plan with the Council’s Library Services. The Council will continue to operate the library: the Friends will fund the improvements.
For £400,000, this is how the Library can be transformed:
- New bookshelves, walkways and seating
- Larger space for children and carers
- Wi-fi to improve learning and reference opportunities
- Flexible layout to provide space for meetings and book-readings
- New décor inside, and a brighter and more welcoming entrance.
Cheques made out to the Friends of Summertown Library can be sent to the Chairman of the Trustees, Marcus Ferrar, at 7 Capel Close, Oxford, OX2 7LA.
Contact him if you prefer to pay by BACS , wish to discuss your contribution, or can support the campaign with secretarial assistance.
