£4,000 is available for spending at TSL – what do you want?

moneyA positive development – £4,000 in Section 106 funds (the money developers pay for projects to benefit the local community) is now available to spend at Tate South Lambeth Library. The library management wants local views on how to use this money. It has to be on capital spending (facilities, building improvements ) not services and it should benefit all users of the library..

The committee of Friends of TSL has selected its own wish list:

  • First came notice boards, both external and internal (in line with the priorities that emerged from the general public at the November open day at the library)
  • Second were tables (there’s a severe shortage at the library as free Wifi means that more people are coming in to use their laptops -very often perched on their knees).
  • Third were stackable chairs to enable the library to manage large meetings (such as the public forum and the popular talks organised by Friends)

(You will notice that a working public lavatory is not on the committee’s list – that’s because Lambeth Libraries has already programmed its renovation.)

So now you know the committee’s views. How about yours? Please email the library manager ( or drop off a note at the library desk saying what you’d like the money spent on – and QUICKLY as the library want to start the sometimes tortuous process of negotiating the use of Section 106 funding as soon as possible.

    Building improvements please: fix the water penetration issue once & for all and make good the water penetration damage.
