UPPER Norwood Library will have its opening hours cut down to just three days a week, it has been revealed.
Funding cuts have meant that libraries will now only be open to the public on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. The changes will take effect from Monday, April 29, with reduced opening hours.
Cllr Jenny Braithwaite from the Gipsy Hill Labour Group said: "This is terrible news.
"It's only because of the strength of feeling in the community and a strong local campaign that the library can remain open at all.
"Lambeth council are currently working with the library staff to help get the library through and keep it open for local people at this difficult time.
"Once the situation is much more stable then the council and we as local councillors want to work with the local community to make the community trust model a possibility."
Croydon Council confirmed to the Advertiser that the library's hours were being cut down to three days a week.
