Breaking news! Could Highgate Library join forces with Jacksons Lane Centre?

Would it be possible to embed the library within Jacksons Lane Arts Centre (when it is refurbished and repaired) to make a new cultural hub in Highgate?

Meetings are now underway to determine if this idea is at all feasible. Important considerations include

  • Whether or not the amount of space needed for a library would take too much rentable space to be an economic possibility for Jacksons Lane.
  • What is the future for libraries nationwide as well as in Haringey?
  • What do people want from a library in 2020 that could happen in a mixed-use space?

There will be discussions and workshops on these subjects at the library on the 17th May, led by the architect Katy Marks.

Everyone will be welcomed to share in this important exercise, whether or not they use the library at the moment.
