New library for New Addington
28/05/2013 14:01:00


It’s great to see that the New Addington Centre opened the doors to its new library for the first time last week.

The move from the old building across the road means that residents can now enjoy a modern space to read, access the internet, take an adult learning course or browse for DVDs.

A particular passion of mine is child literacy, which is why I welcome the news that the Centre has a dedicated children’s library corner that’s twice the size of the previous area, as well as an increase in homework space.

Members of the community can use the building to get advice from the Council on housing and other issues. One of the groups already signed up to use it is the Brenda Kirby Cancer Centre who offer valuable support to cancer sufferers.

When finances are difficult for the Council, multi-functional centres like this offer a valuable service to residents, so it’s good to see that they are investing wisely in what we need.
