We, the undersigned, wish to protest against the proposed closure of Sydenham Library. This valuable community resource has been serving the people of Sydenham on its current site since 1904.
It receives regular visits from local primary schools, nurseries and community groups, such as the Friends of Home Park. This is particularly relevant in view of recent tragic events in Home Park.
It also hosts community-based workshops for young people: eg the current film-making workshop in association with the Sydenham Arts Festival. It is also used by senior citizens and families with young children. Both these groups would find it difficult to travel to either Catford or Forest Hill libraries, the nearest alternative library facilities.
The proposed closure would leave a gap in the facilities of the Lower Sydenham area.
