New Cross Learning (formerly known as the New Cross People’s Library) is a community-run space offering a library service and a bookshop as well as a wide range of learning activities, supported by registered charity Bold Vision. NXL is wholly volunteer-run.
New Cross Learning provides free computer/internet use, Wifi, newspapers and magazines. NXL has desk spaces to work, and we also run learning activities and workshops, including writing and knitting workshops. We also run a lending library of over 5,000 books (supported by Lewisham Council).
Regular book sales are an essential part of NXL's fundraising and great fun for all concerned. Come along to find out more about us, browse some lovely books to buy (or borrow - we are after all a library) and enjoy a cup of tea and some delicious home-made cake.
