The Occupation of Carnegie Library » Closure Of Carnegie Library In Lambeth

A campaigner and policeman play backgammon on the steps of the closed Carnegie Library, in Herne Hill, south London on 2nd April 2016. The angry local community in the south London borough have occupied their important resource for learning and social hub for the weekend. After a long campaign by locals, Lambeth have gone ahead and closed the library’s doors for the last time because they say, cuts to their budget mean millions must be saved. A gym will replace the working library and while some of the 20,000 books on shelves will remain, no librarians will be present to administer it.
