FIVE Croydon libraries are under threat, again!
If the proposed cuts are made, this will affect the whole library service
in Croydon – far fewer staff, loss of book stock, fewer places to access
library services, a fragmented, postcode lottery service, likely to
adversely affect those that need the service most.
     Croydon Council is already spending considerably less on our library
service than similar local authorities. Further cuts will push it to
breaking point, says campaign group SaveCroydon Libraries.
      *There is an online meeting on Thursday night this week*.
Please attend if you can. You need to book by Wednesday night. Details here: https://croydoncc.wordpress.com/2021/01/16/public-meeting-croydon-libraries-under-threat-thurs-21-january-2021/
        You’ll also find there notes from the meeting held in
December, with lawyers from Watkins & Gunn.
