HPPG Survey on Hale End Library is now closed

by / Friday, 10 February 2017 / Published in News

In June 2016 the Council announced that it was considering selling the Hale End (Highams Park) Library building and moving the library services from the existing building on the corner of Castle Avenue and The Avenue to a smaller rented building in Signal Walk near Tesco.

Many local residents feel this would be a mistake, as Hale End Library is the only civic building in Highams Park. The building is much loved and people consider the proposed new location will not achieve the Council’s goal of greater use of the library’s services. After a vigorous campaign by local residents, the Council agreed to defer the decision by up to one year to see if use of the library could be improved in its current location.

We are working with the Council’s library team to improve the number and range of activities that the library provides, and increase the membership and use of facilities.

Please tell us what services YOU want from the library by completing our HIGHAMS PARK LIBRARY SURVEY:

ONLINE at tinyurl.com/highamsparklibrary or pop into the library or visit V&A Books in The Avenue to fill in the survey by hand.

The link to the survey is also on our website, so if you cannot access it through this email please go to www.highamsparkplan.org

We need as many responses and ideas as possible so please do take the time to complete the survey. Your response is very important to us!

CLOSING DATE for responses is Friday, 17th March 2017.
