A new book and vinyl shop has opened in Forest Hill to raise money for the local community library.
Leaf & Groove, a second-hand book and vinyl shop is the latest addition to Dartmouth Road, Forest Hill and though the shop is independent from Forest Hill community library, all profits will go towards maintaining the library, which became independent from Lewisham Council more than a year ago.
Our community shop Leaf and Groove opened on Saturday 9th December. It sells books, vinyl, CDs and DVDs to raise money for the Forest Hill Library, which is now run by the community. Leaf and Groove was crowdfunded and relies on donations of books etc.
The friends of the Horniman Museum have made a very generous donation.
So what is Leaf and Groove? It is primarily a book shop, dealing in second hand, largely donated books that will be sold in order to provide a sustainable income for Forest Hill Library.
