New and refurbished facilities
The library now has more computers and books, fresh fittings and furnishings, self-service machines and a refurbished ‘reading garden’. There are now offices upstairs that are now available for local businesses, and The Mark Bennett Streatham Centre can be hired for exhibitions, meetings, plays, clubs and classes.
Cllr Sally Prentice, Lambeth cabinet member for Culture and Leisure, said: “We have worked closely with the Friends of Streatham Library to make sure that this works as a superb new civic and community space in the heart of Streatham.
“It looks wonderful and will provide exceptional services for everybody in the borough – it’s a library we can be proud of and again demonstrates the council’s cooperative approach with residents.”
