The Friends of Putney Library has organised an information evening next week at which details will be released of a planned comprehensive refurbishment and development at Putney Library.

The project will see major changes to all three floors of the Library and includes business work space on the third floor, a refurbished children’s Library on the second floor as well as a new coffee bar on the ground floor.

Improvements to the heating, doors and public spaces are planned with building works set to commence later this month.

The plans will be presented to library users by Councillor Judi Gasser and officers from Wandsworth council at the library on Wednesday 8 February at 4.30 p.m.

They will show the development plans for all floors of the library, explain how these will work and give the timetable for completion.

There will be an opportunity for questions and answers about the plans.

All are welcome to attend.


Like Reading Articles Like This? Help Us Produce More

This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.

Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.

We've always done that and won't be changing, in fact we'd like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month. If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.

If you do support us in this way we'd be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.

For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least one article a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you'd like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT. All payments are made through a secure web site.
