"The link takes me to a Word doc I think then nothing. I think it’s appalling that the City thinks so little of its residents. It’s time the business vote was abolished."

Money for Repairs

On the 13th January there was a full City Council meeting where Sue Pearson, your local Common Councillor, proposed a motion that the repairs programme for all the City Estates be accelerated by using some of the City’s financial reserves. The repairs programme is moving incredibly slowly even by the City’s standards with the last 5 year plan being inadequately funded while the Estates decay and tenants live in unacceptable conditions. The City has a fund called City Cash which has reserves of £2.6 billion. They have dedicated £50 million of this money to support small business during the pandemic but nothing to support residents. £37 million of this money has not been spent and Sue suggested that, as a start, it might be a good idea to redirect this to Estate repairs.At the Council meeting discussion of the motion was cut short by a point of order and the the motion to speed up repair of your Estates was lost by 75 votes to 19.

City of London

On government advice, we had to close all our libraries from 5th November – 2nd December and we have extended the due dates for all items on loan until 11 January 2021. However, the regulations around closure have been published and there are certain exemptions and services that our libraries will be able to offer during this period. Government advice is very clear about staying away from public transport but if you can walk or cycle to our libraries, we shall be offering the following services from Monday 9th November:

Select and Collect

It’s simple! Have a look at our catalogue. https://col.ent.sirsidynix.net.uk/client/en_GB/default/

 If any book is showing as being on the shelves in any of our libraries, you can phone during opening hours or email us, we will find it for you, issue it to your ticket and tell you when you can collect it. You can request up to 12 books, but don’t forget you will have to carry them home! Please contact the library from which you intend to collect your item(s). Tell us exactly what you want (authors, titles or genres), give us your name, your membership number and a contact telephone number and we will be in touch. You can bring any items you wish to return with you and please, bring a bag for your books. At Barbican Library, we will operate this service from the rear of the library, opposite Shakespeare Tower. Staff will give you directions when they confirm your books are ready for collection. At Shoe Lane and Artizan Street, staff will meet you at the main entrance.

Essential PC use – Shoe Lane and Artizan Street only

If you need to get online, our public computers at Shoe Lane and Artizan Street Libraries will be available Mon-Fri for 1 hour slots during the library opening hours (see below). To avoid disappointment, we strongly advise that you phone ahead and book a session. We cannot allow anybody to wait in the library until one is free and we need 15 minutes between bookings to clean the equipment. We regret that as the Barbican Centre is closed to the public throughout this period, we cannot offer this service at Barbican Library.

Don’t forget our eBooks, eAudiobooks, eMagazines and eComics. They can be downloaded to your own devices using the RBdigital app, and are available 24/7. During this time, staff will still continue to run virtual clubs, groups, talk and children’s activities. Please check our website;(www.cityoflondon.gov.uk/services/libraries) and social media pages for details.
