Very soon you will be able to financially support Blackfen’s new community library through our Just-giving page. We will receive support from Bexley Council to help with the running of the Library but this will not cover all the costs of the refurbishment and set up. Please consider supporting us, however small your gift. We really appreciate your generosity!
An exciting new addition to the library is our community cafe providing a meeting space for the local community with affordable drinks and snacks. We sell barista coffee, fair trade drinks, snacks and yummy cakes. When you register for your new library card we’ll treat you to a free drink in the cafe. Pop in and visit us!
All profits from the cafe go towards the running of the library.
