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!!!

On the anniversary of the closure of Carnegie and Minet libraries and our occupation, library users will be protesting at Carnegie library. After a whole year locked shut and thousands of Lambeth residents denied access to a library service, we say loud and clear 'We need our libraries back! Re-open them now!'

It'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.
