Merton libraries have produced a new short film available on the link below.


Thanks to the LibraryOn grant, we were able to commission a short film showcasing just some of the great services our libraries offer.  There is so much to see and do in our Libraries, they are a colourful hive of activity, buzzing with people of all ages and backgrounds.  Everyone in the film is a real-life service user!
