Homerton Library has been a part of the local community for 40 years. In celebration, Hackney Council is hosting a fun packed day of free events and activities on Saturday 7 June.

Events and activities including face painting, badge making and storytelling will take place in the library. Guests can try Have a go Gardening and they will be entertained by a troupe of African drummers from across West Africa and the Caribbean. There will also be performance poetry from ‘Uncle’, Errol McGlashan and Sam Berkson, Aka ‘Angry Sam’ and the Vinyl Library will be spinning a selection of 45’s. Free refreshments will be available.

Plus residents can amble along the four kilometer History of Homerton Heritage Walk and hear all about Homerton's dissenters. Leaving from Homerton Library at 10:45am the walk takes in Chat's Palace, Hackney Marshes, Wick Wood, the edge of the Olympic Park and Mabley Green.

To book a space email natalieserena.lewis@hackney.gov.uk; or call 020 8356 7577 by 2 June.
