Black Books

Lewisham Council is consulting on its plans to close a substantial proportion of its libraries. Sydenham, Blackheath, Crofton Park, Grove Park and New Cross are all on the closure list. That's 5 - Lewisham has 12 in total. Therefore just under HALF of the council's libraries are set to be closed.

The council calls this 're-shaping service delivery'.

BC remains to be convinced of the rationale for this move. We look forward to hearing from the council in more detail about this proposal.

Many thanks to Transpontine and Blackheath Bugle for picking up on this story and bringing it to our attention.
