Please show your support for Minet library by completing this survey about the future of the Lambeth archive.

Friends of Minet library believe the archive plays a critical role in protecting Minet library.

They believe:

* the archive is the only remaining indoor facility freely available to all in their neighbourhood and it is vitally important that it stays.

* they can bring in millions to redevelop the archive and library on site, helping to create a resource centre for the area with new meeting, exhibition and study spaces, plus investment in interpretation to help everyone connect with our local past.

* the archives are in the right place – in the Victorian setting where they were created.

* there is space to improve parking and funding available to improve bus services to the area – which would also benefit local people.

Please give them your support
