Blackheath Village library is saved by City bankers (UK)

A library closed by Lewisham Council has re-opened as a charity run community centre this week, mostly funded by £500,000 of donations from City bankers. Blackheath Village library was one of five libraries to controversially have its funding removed in 2011 as part of the council's £88m Government imposed budget cuts. As the building was leased, rather than owned by the council, it was the only library forced to vacate its premises
