On the outside of the building, repairs to the external masonry & pointing are underway and restoration of the cupola (the tower over the main entrance) is now complete. The scaffolding has started to come down so the view from Green Lane is beginning to look quite impressive!
We have set up a Just Giving page for anyone who would like to play their part in restoring these iconic elements of The Old Library. Your donations are vital in helping us raise the additional funds we need to complete these historic repairs in our beloved building and meet the shortfall we face after discovering the extent and severity of damage throughout The Old Library. Any donation - no matter how big or small – will make a difference. It’s your way of putting something real back into the fabric of the building &continuing the legacy of The Old Library.
Donate here to ensure that The Old Library remains a source of support, opportunity & inspiration for local people and can be enjoyed by our community for many years to come.
