would you like the service to be delivered? Who should
deliver the service? The council officers are currently
moving towards the premise that the library would be best
housed in the Waterloo Action Centre building. But the

location - Living Space on Waterloo Road and Oasis Centre on
the corner of Westminster Bridge Road and Kennington Road
could also feasibly host a library. Come and share your
