In April 2014 The LFTT Library ran a Fundit campaign to raise funds to build a new modular storage/shelving system which could adapt more easily to each new environment. Thanks to overwhelming support the campaign was a success and as a result the library will now live longer and have a wider reach to new audiences. The new build has proven great in protecting the collection in transit, as well as making fantastic modular sculptural material. Thanks to all our wonderful funders for supporting the project, we couldn’t have done it without you.xxx
