Lambeth Libraries are under threat! Come and join the campaign!
The Culture 2020 consultation proposes:
- Half of Lambeth’s Libraries under threat of closure
- Immediate sell-off of Minet and Waterloo Libraries
- Funding stopped to Carnegie, Durning and Upper Norwood Libraries
- Cut opening hours at remaining libraries
- Reduce size of West Norwood and Brixton Libraries
- Replace Libraries with bookshelves in pubs
Come to Waterloo Library and take out your full 15 book allowance, we plan to empty the shelves and show we need our libraries. You can sign up for a library card on the day, bring a proof of address (you do not need to live in Lambeth to join the library).
There will be storytelling and face painting for children, on the day.
What can I do to help?
- Download our Big Borrow poster (PDF) (or in jpeg below) and stick it up at home/work/school/public noticeboards/shops to spread the word.
- Share this post on your facebook/twitter/email
- Come to the library on Saturday and withdraw your full allowance with all your friends and family!
