Although the Minet lending library closed at the end of March, the archives and local studies library are still in the building and are still open and staffed. Their opening hours have not changed.
However, there is some doubt about the future of the building and Lambeth Council has engaged a consultancy to look into the long-term future of the archives, especially its location. All options are on the table including remaining at the Minet. As part of a consultation exercise, the consultancy has created an on-line survey. This survey is not only aimed at users of the archives. They would also like to hear from people who do not currently use the archives why they do not do so. Please help secure the future of this vital resource by taking part in the survey. This is the link: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/YSGWVDR
