Sadly, despite the summer weather Erdington’s historic library has again suffered water damage over recent months.
This has secured some minor works to try and plug leaks, which Gareth recently inspected with the staff from the Library Service.
However much more investment is required from the Council if we are to prevent the irreversible damage from happening to our treasured library.
The next steps of our campaign to secure the repairs to the library are happening at the end of September when we meet the Cabinet Member responsible to discuss the need for further investment.
Erdington Library is well known for the excellent service that staff provide. Libraries can be even more providing a local venue for other help acting as a ‘one stop shop’.
However, before any of that can be considered here in Erdington first it is vital that the Council gets the roof properly replaced and the building watertight to ensure that Erdington Library is still going strong in another 100 years.
Gareth and I have been clear with the Council the current state of Erdington Library is totally unacceptable. Residents can rest assured we are demanding the Council take action.
