Plans to bring a brand new library to Penge town centre have been given the go-ahead by Bromley Council.
The borough said this week that the new library would be located on Green Lane and replace existing facilities in Penge and at Anerley Town Hall.
Councillor Peter Morgan, the borough’s renewal and recreation lead, said the new building would provide more modern facilities and a wider selection of books than the other venues - as well as boasting community space.
“This new, larger and more modern library in the heart of Penge town centre will be a focus for the community and provide a facility for the 21st century for residents,” he said.
“Even in this difficult economic climate we are still investing in first-class services for local residents and future generations.
“Library users will not only be able to borrow books but be able to access council services and community space, borrow DVDs and use the internet all in one place.”
Councillor Morgan said the new library was expected to be completed by June.
