£836k secured for the Durning Library
In case you missed it, just before Christmas Lambeth Council announced excellent news of significant investment into library buildings.
Durning Library is one of the biggest winners, with £836 000 allocated to pay for 'refurbishment to address essential health and safety improvements to the roof, brickwork, electrics and other repairs'.
Unlike many other councils, Lambeth has committed to keeping open all 10 libraries in the borough, and investing in them to bring them into the 21st century.
In addition, we're working to turn our libraries into model 'cooperative' services. Today the Friends of the Durning Library and the library staff held an open day to show how local organisations can become more involved. To find out more, and to join the Friends, just pop into the library.
