MINET HUB: Bulletin 1

31 Jan 2015 12:00 PM | Chair (Administrator)
Yesterday, Lambeth Council launched a public consultation in which there are proposals to make major cuts to services in this area.

These include:
  • Moving Lambeth Archives from Minet Library building
  • Closing the Library in 2015
  • Selling the Minet Library building to developers in 2016
  • Making savage cuts to park budgets and staffing

We must stop this happening but it would appear from recent consultations that the Council is most likely to be swayed if we can come up with both plans and crucially, funding, to help them think differently about the future of public buildings and services in the area.

We need your help.

Please could I ask that you:
  • Look at the consultation and take the time to respond to it (closing date April 2015) http://www.lambeth.gov.uk/consultations/cultural-services-by-2020
  • Tell your friends/neighbours too
  • Show your support by using the Library and Archives more.
  • Actively support the Friends of Minet Library – join the group and help develop plans to retain and repurpose the building for future generations to enjoy.
  • Post comments onto the forums, website and email accounts for Friends of Minet Library
  • Let Friends of Minet Library know what you think:

This bulletin is also available for distribution as a PDF docment here.
