It seems sensible to post up the full history so here are the papers and the Red Quadrant report (September 2018) that went to the Cabinet Meeting in May 2019.
The relevant papers can be downloaded here:

Allan Nimmo, the Council Officer responsible, has confirmed that although the online survey closes today, he will accept paper copies completed received "in the next few days".
So, if you haven't had your say, take a look at our leaflet, here, containing useful information such as pitfalls to look out for,
|The clear agenda of our Labour council...|
|Result of the Croydon Advertiser poll|
|Is this the offer we want for our children?|
|Unstaffed floors in what was one of the busiest libraries in England...|
|Signs at the ready.... IT issues in all libraries|
|Croydon's promotion of reading for our younger residents....|

Few still know of the consultation, so please spread the word.
Be aware that people who have completed the online survey have had issues. See the notes on page 2 of the flyer below.
Download the flyer here.

Do let us know your thoughts...

This is not what Upper Norwood Library campaign fought for and a battle the new Trust now has to take on. The local politicians seem to think this is perfectly acceptable and wave on the loss of staff with a few platitudes...
That is a battle now for the newly formed Trust to take forward...
You can comment on this website, or even contribute a post.
The intention of providing this was twofold. It meant that residents could share the survey with those not online who may want to express a view. It also meant that those who were able to complete it online could consider the survey first before completing it online, therefore avoiding the issues some have reported of the survey closing before they've had time to add comments they wished to make.
It is not provided purely to increase the workload of the council officer responsible, who will have to manually input responses provided in this way, not to increase the workload of the limited number of staff still in our libraries!
The Campaign is not encouraging everyone to do a paper copy as the information in circulation from other sources appears to imply. If you are providing a copy to someone else, please provided them with the PDF attached here, and not a scanned copy that is not as legible.
DOWNLOAD IT HERE:
You may even like to defer responding until after the public meeting.
Places are limited. Please see the full details and book a place if you plan to attend. See: https://croydoncc.wordpress.com/2016/04/06/ccc-public-meeting-on-libraries-tues-26-april-2016/
