12 days of Fabian Christmas: Creating co-operative libraries
Lambeth councillor Sally Prentice and former Lambeth Council leader (and recently elected MP for Croydon North) Steve Reed explain how Lambeth Council are transforming their library service - including opening the first new library in Lambeth for over 40 years...
“In 1891, writing the history of the library movement following the Libraries Acts of 1850 and 1855, Thomas Greenwood wrote: “Every one of the other parishes, which has since adopted the Acts owes something of its successful movement to the noble example set by Lambeth.” Lambeth Council, together with our communities, in creating co-operative libraries, are seeking to set such an example in the twenty first century.”
