Library scheduled for closure by Labour council
Library scheduled for closure by Labour council

In order to save money our Labour run Waltham Forest Council is making changes to the library system (this includes the closure of our local Harrow Green Library).

The council admits that, in the south of the borough, where deprivation is most concentrated, health, education attainment and housing standards are lower, libraries are a focus for communities that enhance people’s quality of life. Libraries alleviate the effects of deprivation.

The Library building is home to many local groups and activities, as well as borrowing a book, access to the internet and for study and homework. 50% of the borrowers are children.

The council now has a 12 week consultation period ending on Friday 9 September.

I call upon the London Borough of Waltham Forest Council to keep Harrow Green Library open. It provides an invaluable public service.
