There has been uproar in recent months over the closure and cuts of many beloved libraries across the UK. Highlighted by campaigns such as the Evening Standard’s ‘Save Our Libraries’. Which is backed by high-profile authors such as Benjamin Zephaniah and Martina Cole. It is therefore comforting to see that Mayfair Library is still up and running. Providing local residents with a great range of fiction and non-fiction books, and many other services.
Monthly Reading Groups.
In addition to the main library, there is a small children’s section. Which holds a Chatterbooks reading club and homework group, as well as events for under 5s. For adult visitors. There are monthly Reading Groups, and regular Employment Advice sessions. It is also possible to hire a meeting room for any business or conference needs.
They are a hugely important resource for learning.
Last year, figures showed that children who use libraries are twice as likely to be above-average readers. They are a hugely important resource for learning regardless of age. Whether you prefer the latest bestsellers or classics, libraries offer you them for free. They are a great asset to any community, and one that more people should utilise.
Mayfair library is located on South Audley Street. Accessible from Bond Street, Green Park or Hyde Park Corner, and is open Monday to Friday, 11:00 am – 7:00 pm, and 10:30 – 2:00 pm on Saturdays.
