The Council clings to its blinkered libraries policy –

On January  27th Lambeth’s Labour councillors – who have an overwhelming majority on the Council – voted yet again to support the library policy set out in the Culture 2020 document.

They approved an amendment, by Councillor Jane Edbrooke, to a motion supporting the mutual trust proposal from the head of Lambeth Libraries, presented by the Green Party councillor, Scott Ainslie.  Edbrooke butchered the Ainslie motion, removing both the reference to the “town centre” libraries already being full to capacity and having to turn away people, and the endorsement of the mutual fund proposal that would keep all ten libraries in operation, yet make the savings required by the Council.
