Library closures - The Latest

The weekly Insider column in the Croydon Advertiser has had a stab at predicting the outcome of the proposals to close up to six local libraries. No one officially knows who the The Insider is, but if it is who we all suspect it is, then we have to assume her/his sources are reliable.

The column says:

The strongest rumour is that Norbury library will not face the chop, a direct response to the vociferous opposition campaign.
Sanderstead and South Norwood might not be so lucky but rather than close altogether could be kept open a couple of days a week.
Broad Green would appear to be the most likely closure candidate and there have been suggestions for some time that Bradmore Green could find a new home in a nearby educational establishment.
Shirley is difficult to call although public opposition is strong and Croydon Central MP, Gavin Barwell is on a mission to keep it open.
