Lambeth Council is consulting local people about the future of the Minet Library today (Friday 22nd March) from 10am to noon, and also on Monday 26th March, from 7pm to 9pm. There are consultation documents available in the Library to complete.
The council has to make cuts to library services, and is consulting people about how these cuts should be divided between the different libraries. The closing date for the Libraries Consultation is the 20th April.
Full detail can be seen on the website:
Myatt’s Fields Park Project is in the process of forming a new Minet Hub including the park, Minet Library, Longfield Hall and the new Remakery (re-use centre).
This has the aim of saving the library, supporting the enhancement of Longfield Hall, sustaining the regeneration of Myatt’s Fields Park, and supporting the development of the new Remakery.
We’ve put our initial thoughts down in a one-page document attached here. We have also drawn up a two page proposal for developing the Minet Library which is also attached. We will be jointly making a response to the consultation in the next week so please do feedback any comments on either of these proposals.
