    UNDER THREAT: Carnegie library and garden

    This is the planning applications meeting which will decide the fate of the Carnegie Library - to turn our public library into a pay-to-use gym! Despite relentless opposition from library users and the local community and the many objections submitted to the  planning applications we know the council intend to grant  permission.

     

     

    Show the council we haven't gone away or given up! Come along to the meeting to show the strength of feeling. Join us to protest and to stand up for our precious library service!!!

    C8RBRBGXYAAmd5XIt's now been a year since Lambeth shut our libraries and removed the vital service they provided from one of the most deprived areas of the whole borough. Having chosen to spend money spent to keep the libraries locked and with plans to spend £millions to replace a free public service with pay-to-use gyms, Defend the Ten invites everyone to a campaigning public meeting to demand they re-open Minet and Carnegie now.
