West Barnes Library - April 2016

West Barnes Library urgently needs more volunteers to assist staff at a range of levels.  You could be helping to keep the library open for the people of Motspur Park! Don’t hold back - training will be given – and you might find it fun.  For more details and to apply, please ask at the library counter. 

And the good news is…

Anthony Hopkins, Merton's Head of Library and Heritage Service has told the Friends of West Barnes Library that the London Borough of Merton remains committed to developing the West Barnes Library site so that first class library services are enjoyed for generations to come. Council officers have been working to explore what will provide the best value and best quality approach for the site and are expected to publish further news regarding the proposed approach soon. As part of the work into starting the development some interesting new options are being explored including the formation of a council run development company to realise the new library and residential property. Due to the detailed work undertaken in looking at the different options there may be a slight delay to the new development starting and we will continue to update you when there is further news.
