Manor House Library- will now open just 20 Hours per week.
Report from the Friends Group.
In spite of meeting with council officers responsible for the library service only last Wednesday afternoon, the information that has gone out to the public has changed.
From 17th October library opening hours at the Manor House will NOT be 24 during the “Interim Period” but 20. We had no prior notice of the reduction from 24 hours per week.
We have e-mailed Ms Dart to ascertain why this has been changed at short notice.
Please make sure you post this change, circulate the information to all contacts where necessary. Leaflets of opening hours are availabe at the Manor House and you may wish to use the opportunity to say farewell to your favourite staff.
We have a building restored at great public expense, by all residents of Lewisham, with a mortgage of £122,000 pa until 2049.

regards to all,
