Durning Library temporarily closed

Message from Lambeth's Head of Libararies:
It is with great frustration that I report another closure of Durning Library, which began on Tuesday. We discovered a major water leak under the floor of the Children’s library which was seeping up into the library itself. On investigation it was discovered that the pipework under the floor in the Office and Children’s area was so corroded that it started leaking as soon as the work to the water tank and associated pipe work to the boiler was completed.

Long tracts of pipe and links have to be rebuilt and the floor of the Children’s library is up and all heating turned off. The work is progressing well, but the contactors have reported we are unlikely to be able to open before Wednesday 24th.

We have put a notice up explaining the closure and because of the length of closure we are directing customers to either South Lambeth or Waterloo.

I’ll let you know as soon as we have something definite from the contractors.
