Saturday July 11th is the date of the next quarterly library forum – your chance to monitor and question our library’s performance, plans and policies, at a public get-together of library managers and local people.

Friends will want to ask about the state of play on:

  • the refurbishment of the library (long-planned and still only partly implemented)
  • remedial work on the public lavatory drains (a very longstanding problem)

What do you want to hear about? Come along and ask, propose, object – at Tate South Lambeth LIbrary at 2-4pm on Saturday July 11th.
