The next session of the Tate South Lambeth Library public forum will be held at the library on Saturday January 18th at 2-4pm. This is the opportunity for any member of the general public to raise questions, present complaints, challenge library policy and priorities, and put forward proposals.
Everyone is invited.
The highlight of the meeting will be a description by Susanna Barnes, Library Manager Operations and Communities, of the new staffing structure to be introduced at TSL (as part of the overall restructuring of the Lambeth library service).
Susanna will also report on plans for building work at TSL. This is an area of great concern to supporters of our local library in that – with only three months to go before the end of the financial year – no work has yet begun on a £107,000 capital spending programme planned for TSL.
Two updates will be presented – on the c.£4,000 spend on equipment for the library under Section 106 funding and on volunteering at the library.
This agenda covers most of the points that Friends committee wants this forum to deal with. But we also want answers to the following questions:
- when will something be done to tackle the known underlying problem (defective drains) that means the public toilet remains out of use?
- what are the rates the library proposes to charge for out-of-hours use of the premises?
