The next session of the Tate South Lambeth Library public forum will be held at the library on Saturday October 12th at 2-4pm. This is the face-to-face meeting of library managers and local people, held every three months, where the library’s plans are set out and its performance is held up to scrutiny by the general public.
The October 12th meeting will provide up-to-date information on:
- The planned restructuring of library staff
- Spending so far on this year’s budget
- The items to be bought for TSL from Section 106 funds (money that developers pay for projects to benefit the local community)
- New activities at the library
- Work on the building – recent and planned
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.
Members of Friends committee will be raising two issues: what’s the progress on spending this year’s capital allocation of £107,000 (if the library doesn’t get a move on, the money will be left unspent at the end of the financial year); and how far has the library got in mobilising volunteers to support its activities.
