Lambeth Libraries - consultation - comments by 16 September

Lambeth has begun consulting on what people would like from libraries in the borough.

They are asking local people, staff and community groups to engage with them over the coming months in order to decide what a modern and effective service can look like.

You can access details of the consultation and a questionnaire for your views from the council's website

How can you get involved?
There are a number of ways in which local residents, organisations and groups can take part.

1. You can complete a questionnaire
Complete an online questionnaire from the council's website .

We have also provided paper copies in all Lambeth libraries, which people can either complete and post into one of the "Libraries - Have Your Say" comments boxes in each library, or send back to the Freepost address given below.
