This activities week the Libraries are putting on a range of workshops and events around the theme of climate emergency and sustainable living.

Join us in the CSM materials library to learn about upcycling with our ‘Knotting and Potting’ workshop where you will make macramé pot hangers and plant them up.

Not feeling green fingered? Try our ‘Finger Knitting’ workshop instead. Learn how to turn your old t shirts into yarn and  upcycle them. Want something less hands on? Drop in for Books and Cake to chat about your favourite books.

CCW and LCC Libraries are running a series of Special Collections show and tell sessions and Chelsea and Camberwell are running a series of lunchtime book talks on the theme of Climate Emergency.

LCC Library’s Reading list Hackathon is a collaborative event in which the concept of wellbeing is explored and discussed by library staff and students, to build a shopping list of books for the library to buy.

Please remember CSM Library will NOT be open 24 hours this week. Closing at 10pm Mon-Fri
