New skylights make Southfields Library a brighter place

Published: Thursday 30th October 14

Southfields Library has been reopened to the public following works to install two new skylights in its roof.

The council has spent around £16,000 on repairing the library’s roof and installing the new skylights.

While the works were being carried out, the library was closed to residents, but it was reopened to the public on Tuesday.  

Community services spokesman Cllr Jonathan Cook said: “This is good news for the many local people who use Southfields library.

“Wandsworth Council is investing in its libraries at a time when many other local authorities are closing theirs.”
