York Gardens Library Saved

Councillors are expected to endorse a series of “Big Society” proposals to save Battersea’s York Gardens library from closure.

An innovative rescue package has been devised that will see the threatened library continue to provide a children’s library service, alongside some adult provision, a homework club, public-access IT and internet facilities and a community space.

The key to the rescue plan is a Big Society solution involving local staff, the greater use of volunteers and utilising offers of help and support from a local private school foundation that wants to contribute more to its surrounding neighbourhoods.
