Over the next few weeks Lambeth council is starting a discussion with local people about what they want from their library service. Things like the internet, electronic books, amazon and wi-fi are changing the way we all use information, books & libraries. As well as technological changes the council will have less money to spend on libraries – because the Tory government, supported by the Lib Dems, has cut Lambeth’s spending by one third.
There will be two “open space” sessions during June 2011 to talk about Lambeth’s libraries . Open space sessions allows everyone attending to have an opportunity to discuss what is important to them.
Saturday 4 June 2011 – 10am to 1pm, at Lambeth Town Hall (Assembly Hall), Brixton SW2
Tuesday 14 June 2011 – 6.30 to 9.30pm at Lambeth Town Hall (Assembly Hall), Brixton SW2
