Garden Suburb Community Library

Description & History

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 70 volunteers who have been trained to run it.It has been a huge success. We run toddlers’ read and rhyme and story time sessions, have recruited volunteers for older children’s activities, and have launched an adult book club.

Fair Play Barnet

Fair Play Barnet was created following the merger of the Inclusive Play Opportunities Project (IPOP) with Barnet Play. We launched as a pilot scheme in November 1994 after seeing that no disabled children were being given the chance to enjoy play schemes or after-school clubs in the London Borough of Barnet.
