About this Event

Our library service is so much more than buildings and books. Since bringing our libraries in-house we have invested significantly in the service, upgrading the IT equipment and broadband making them more modern and inclusive community spaces. Members can now also access six million books through our membership of The Libraries Consortium, including 41,000 e-books, newspapers, magazines and training materials. Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic we’ve seen a major shift in the way people access our service and use digital collections, with 1,800 new online members. The council is currently facing severe financial challenges, which means we will need to be clear about our priorities and make some tough decisions about what we will and won’t do over the next few years. Some services will stop and others, such as our library service, will have to change. But, by focusing on a smaller number of priorities for our residents, we will make sure that we are delivering good quality services, where they will have the biggest impact.

We are committed to delivering a comprehensive and efficient library service, which operates within the reduced resources available. This means that we are having to look at either closing some of our library buildings, or find an alternative that would not require any council funding.

We have received over 1300 responses to the Libraries Consultation so far and would like to feedback on what you have been saying and answer your most frequently asked questions.

This will be an hour long session which includes a short presentation followed by Q&As with a focus on Sanderstead Library.

All attendees are welcome to submit questions in advance to librariesconsultation@croydon.gov.uk or leave a message on 020 7884 5159

This session will be recorded and available to access after the event.
