I am writing to ask you to reverse the proposals made by Lambeth Council to close Minet Library on 1st April and give the premises over to GLL for a peppercorn rent.
A bookshelf in a gym is not a library. There will be no staff to hold story and rhymetimes, reading groups, homework clubs or offer advice on applying for jobs and benefits. Lambeth won’t only lose half its libraries, we will lose our dementia groups, our film clubs, our English conversation groups, our chess clubs, our coders clubs, our access to advice and information and our safe and neutral spaces for children to study. Lambeth Council is ripping the heart out of our communities.
I am calling on Lambeth Council to halt their action immediately before it’s irreversible.
