The proposed redevelopment of Marylebone Library on Luxborough Street will no longer go ahead. Below is a letter from Mike Clarke
Director of Libraries and Archives, Westminster City Council explaining the decision.
Dear Library Member
I am writing to let you know that the proposed redevelopment of Marylebone Library on Luxborough Street will no longer go ahead. This difficult decision was taken following a substantial increase of £6 million in development costs.
The council remains committed to providing a library in Marylebone and will continue to provide a temporary library whilst we are looking for a permanent site.
The temporary library on Beaumont Street will move to a new location on nearby New Cavendish Street in early 2017.
We apologise for the inconvenience caused and hope you will continue to make use of the excellent library facilities in nearby Mayfair and Church Street or the temporary library on Beaumont Street until a permanent location is found.
