Community Libraries Failing in Lewisham
Figures from Lewisham continue to show much reduced activity at their "community libraries". They contrast with a broadly static picture for the Lewisham Library service as a whole. My suspicion is that the library services in these buildings will gradually decline, and they will be taken over for other purposes. If so, it seems like a very slow and expensive way to transfer buildings to the private sector.
