Stella Duffy @stellduffy #CarnegieLibrary is also lacking full disabled access - am horrified (but not at all surprised) that @lambeth_council think it's ok to 're-open' the building when it's not accessible to ALL. ♻Michael J Keane Lambeth have sucked the life out of @CarnegieLib Their #SpinMachine is putting on a show before election and once … Continue reading CARNEGIE LIBRARY: MORE FROM THE TWITTERSPHERE

Defend The Ten Retweeted sarabredemear @sarabredemear Feb 18 Delusional info about @CarnegieLib through the door today. All this existed before @LambethLabour closed it 2 years ago. Residents repeatedly ask for library staff over longer hours.

News From Crystal Palace does not normally condone vandalism like this. But given what many people feel is the vandalism of much of the borough's library service by Lambeth Labour....... One hundred people attended the 're-opening' of the Carnegie library at Herne Hill - but the three Herne Hill ward councillors and the three members … Continue reading CARNEGIE LIBRARY ‘RE-OPENS’ – 100 people attend including two Lambeth councillors (but not the Herne Hill ones)
For the sake of balance News From Crystal Palace reproduces the press release issued by Lambeth on yesterday's re-opening. Whoever wrote it is a mystery as no department has put their name to it. Again, for the sake of balance, comments in bold are the responses by News From Crystal Palace. Carnegie Library reopens Written … Continue reading CARNEGIE LIBRARY RE-OPENING: THE OFFICIAL VIEW FROM LAMBETH (BY AN ANONYMOUS CORRESPONDENT)
Janet - Brixton Hill @1isthinking Replying to @LambethLabour If you have so little imagination that you can only use the "austerity" excuse perhaps you should spend more time in a library, rather than spend £200k on security to keep people out.

The move - made on February 5th - comes as the Carnegie Community Trust has announced details of its 'business plan' for the building - which include weddings and alcohol (please see separate story). New plans marked 'community library phasing … Continue reading GREENWICH LEISURE APPLY TO USE CARNEGIE LIBRARY HERNE HILL AS….A “TEMPORARY COMMUNITY LIBRARY” – as Trust plan to have weddings and booze in the building!
Coming soon to the Carnegie library Herne Hill: weddings, the consumption of alcohol (supported by Lambeth council) and a moveable stage and audio system for performance. The latest ideas for the library on Herne Hill Road are included in the Carnegie Community Trust's business plan for the library - and the trust then plan to … Continue reading WEDDINGS AND BOOZE IN CARNEGIE LIBRARY
The Carnegie Community Trust's business plan for the Herne Hill library was going to cause ructions whatever they came up with. The people living in the flats above the library are not going to want loud music coming up from downstairs of an evening - especially on Saturdays and Sundays. Users of the library - … Continue reading LAMBETHWATCH OPINION: “SOME DEDICATED SPACE MUST BE RESERVED FOR EXCLUSIVE LIBRARY USE” – The Carnegie Community Trust reveal their business plan for the Herne Hill library.
The above has been posted on the Defend the Ten Twitter page earlier today. Defend The Ten Retweeted Aran Lewis @aranmlewis 6 hours ago: Lambeth council has confirmed that the fake mini-library due to open in Carnegie on 15th Feb is temporary and will close “on or before 12 February 2019.” After that, an unspecified … Continue reading LAMBETHWATCH – CARNEGIE LIBRARY HERNE HILL RE-OPENS THURSDAY AT 1PM – BUT FOR HOW LONG?
