Severe reduction in government funding to the Winch, a youth center in London, and the Belsize Library it operates have significantly hindered their ability to serve the community. The goal of this project was to identify areas where the library and Winch can improve their services for youth by enhancing community presence and increasing funds. We conducted fifteen interviews with staff members at Belsize Library and the Winch and surveyed community members. We explored new opportunities for marketing and collecting donations. We recommended the use of a cashless donation system for the library and improvements to the room rental system, an important source of revenue. To promote awareness of the services the library and the Winch provide, we created a historical narrative for its website.
