Protest as fake less-than-a-library opens in Carnegie library building
JOIN US IN PROTEST: WE NEED OUR LIBRARY SERVICE BACK!
Almost 2 years after Lambeth Council closed Carnegie library and after relentless campaigning by library Friends and Defend the 10 campaigners, the council is finally ready to unlock the doors...but it won't be to welcome the return of our much loved and still needed library. Apart from 2 hours a day when a librarian will visit, GLL customer care staff will replace the professional librarians and trained library staff who used to provide us with our library service. Money that could have been used to restore the library is being diverted into the pet project of the Councillors' friends, the Carnegie Community Trust, while £millions have gone on excavating the basement for a pay-to-use gym that no one wants. In a rush to get their fake library in place before the local elections, Lambeth Council are opening the building while major building works continue and there are huge issues with health and safety. It's a really expensive dogs's dinner and offers no future for the library.
