New Cross Library will be closed temporarily to enable repairs and Blackheath Library has been transferred to Age Exchange.
Cllr Morrison – one of the leaders of the campaign said: 'This is wonderful news for Crofton Park Community. The campaign brought all sections of the community together and we already have a significant number of volunteers to work with the Library Manager.'
Crofton Park Ward Assembly has ring-fenced £15,000 to support set up costs as the library transforms into Crofton Park Community Library, to eventually include:
- Longer opening hours
- A café
- A Job Club
- Community space
- Computer training
If you would like to volunteer in the library then please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
