Library Consultation

In response to the borough’s unprecedented financial deficit, the council has launched an online survey asking residents how they use the libraries service and what their views are on proposals to close five of its 13 library buildings. 

The buildings at:

  1. Bradmore Green
  2. Shirley
  3. Sanderstead
  4. South Norwood and
  5. Broad Green

will close unless viable alternative plans are found that require no public money.  

At this stage of the consultation they want to hear your views on the proposals, ideas for our library service and suggestions for alternative ways we could use library buildings.   This information will be used to help further develop options and consult you again on these, before taking a proposal to cabinet for a decision in summer 2021. 

There are several ways to contribute your views:
