Keats community library

About the Charity 

Keats Community Library is local volunteer-run community library. It is run by the community for the community.

When Camden Council closed Heath Library in 2012, a group of local residents started a charity to take it over, and soon 40 volunteers had stepped forward to run it. Its a much loved local hub now, providing not only a brilliant library with up to date fiction and non-fiction, but also rhyme-time for toddlers, creative writing and chess classes for children, and occasional events such as a magician, a puppeteer and family concerts.  For the grown-ups there’s a Reading Group, and fabulous (and affordable) evening events with such luminaries as Michael Palin, Sir Derek Jacobi, Dame Diana Rigg, Howard Jacobson, Sir David Hare, and recitals by singers from the Royal Opera House.

 The Library is housed in a lovely Grade II listed building with a beautiful stained glass dome.  It is next to Keats House Museum, surrounded by a lovely garden.About the Charity
