Dear Friends,

The Feminist Library is in an emergency situation, facing eviction in the near future after 30 years in the current building!

We request that you show your support by spreading the word far and wide and by telling your friends how much the library means to you. Other ways that you can help us immediately include:

- Sign our petition https://you.38degrees.org.uk/p/savefeministlibrary 
- Send letters to Southwark local councillors and Southwark MPs: Neil Coyle, Labour Party Member of Parliament for Bermondsey & Old Southwark (the Feminist Library’s constituency) Tel: 020 7219 8733. Email:neil.coyle.mp@parliament.uk; Helen Hayes, Labour Party Member of Parliament for Dulwich and West Norwood Tel: 020 7219 6971. Email: helen.hayes.mp@parliament.uk; Harriet Harman, Labour Party Member of Parliament for Camberwell and Peckham Tel: 020 7219 4218 Email: harriet.harman.mp@parliament.uk
- Donate to our Emergency Fund that has been set up to ensure that the Feminist Library collection's future is safe regardless of the final decision of the council on our current premises
- Offer a hand with the campaign (we are always on a lookout for new volunteers, but at the moment we urgently need help with events, media, marketing and premises work).
- Send us a brief testimonial saying how much the library means to you, especially mentioning if you have used it, attended events there or been a volunteer.
- Tell us if you are a Southwark resident, so we can contact you for specific help locally.
