Friends of Highgate Library, Shepherds Hill (FOHLSH) was set up in April 2017 to fight the proposed closure of our beautiful library.  Thanks to the support of local residents and library users we were successful in our campaign in September 2017.

Since then we have had a number of successful events and produced a proposal for installing a lift in the library so that there is disabled access to the community rooms on the first floor.  In June 2018, Highgate Neighbourhood Forum, (HNF), listed that as a priority project for funding so the next step is to get funding for this from Haringey Council.
