Lewisham Library Service SE13
Lewisham council voted to close 5 libraries out of 12 after a seven month consultation with a pre-determined decision. These will be replaced by so-called community libraries with many fewer books and undetermined amount of council money, no cost/benefit analysis on the “savings”, the loss of 19/20 jobs. These 5 libraries rack up visit figures of 327,000 pa and 264,000 issues pa.
The petitions to keep them open showed 25,443 signatures.
