Shirley Library – an update

Croydon Council have sent us the following …

Thank you for your response to the consultation on Croydon’s Libraries and for registering your interest to be kept informed on the next steps.

We received a great response to the consultation with over 3,600 responses to the survey and over 1000 people joining us at meetings and events around the borough.  Since the consultation closed on 19 April, the library team has been reviewing all the feedback received.

 We had originally planned to bring a report on the consultation findings and revised proposals for the library service to a Croydon Cabinet meeting in June or July, however,  following the calling of the general election, the council entered a pre-election period, which limits aspects of the Council’s work until after the general election. This has impacted Cabinet meeting timetables and the libraries review has now been rescheduled to be discussed at a meeting on 24 September.

Papers for the 24 September Cabinet will be published online one week before the meeting. We will email you to let you know when they are available.

Thank you again for your support for Croydon’s library service.

Kind regards
Croydon Libraries
