Latest on libraries campaign from Friends of Lambeth Libraries

The Friends of Lambeth Library have issued their latest newsletter with important dates coming up.

Read the update by Laura Swaffield, Chair of Friends of Lambeth Libraries.  We have only days to go until Minet and Carnegie Libraries are due to close.  These buildings will be closed to the public on 1st April but not a penny saved.   Please support the events below and circulate this email to your friends.

Every supporter and every action counts.
