I spent last Saturday morning in Brixton Library, running a mini astronaut training camp as part of Fun Palaces. We did a spot of physical training, ate bugs to prove we were tough enough to survive in the wild after a spaceship crash landing, and designed astronaut mission patches.
The library staff were brilliant – great with the kids, supportive and helpful. So when I discovered that cuts are looming for Lambeth Libraries it seemed incredibly cruel – cutting amazing community resources like this, staffed by knowledgable professionals. I really hope this gets reversed.
