Success! You have helped us make the new home for the Feminist Library possible!
On 31st March we came to the end of our exciting (and successful!) journey on Crowdfunder! As we close this amazing period in our herstory, we would like to extend massive thanks to the whole Crowdfunder UK team, all of our donors, our fabulous design team and all our dedicated volunteers, and everyone who has supported us in any other way along the way. It wouldn't have been such an incredible success story without all the support we have received from the community, so we will remain eternally grateful.
YOU have all contributed to making #FeministLibraryNewHome happen!
Together, we have raised:
- nearly £49,000! which is
- 163% of our initial target! and
- 102% of our stretch target!
as well as over £20,000 in off-line donations!
Meaning that we have now covered the full budget for Feminist Library move! This is wonderful news, which means we can make a start on getting the new amazing home of Feminist Library ready for us very soon - and it will be beautiful.
This weekend, we had a crafternoon / volunteers social and celebrated this massive win with some of our wonderful team.
In the next couple of weeks, we hope to be able to start works on the new space and make it ready for the opening. As soon as we have finalised the timeline, we will be updating everyone who's been part of this journey on when the new space will be opening, and of course dates of our big opening party. So watch this space!
In the meantime, you can also sign up to our newsletter to get regular updates about what's going on at the Library, not just with the move, but our events, stalls, and more. For example, at the end of the month, we have a big benefit, celebrating women's history, film and theatre, at Conway Hall, in collaboration with Unfinished Histories. If you'd like to support the Library further, you can also sign up to our Friends Scheme and give a regular donation to keep the Library going long-term, or volunteer.
As we get ready to say goodbye to our home of 33 years, we also take a bit of a trip down memory lane. Our current Library home - getting ready for the move, all packed up and in boxes - looks like this at the moment; as seen by one of our amazing creative volunteers and the artist behind our move dragon, Pops Comixs:
Also watch this space for more updates on the creative processes behind the move, the creation of our move zine and film, and more.
Thank you again, and we hope to see you all at the new space soon!
