The million pounds spent on Leyton library must be a boon for people using computers. But for the elderly it's a nightmare, trying to get the lift from downstairs to come up or from the top floor down has been a problem.
On my visit this week the lift was completely out of order. So I was unable to get new books.
On a previous visit when I managed to get to the library via the lift I asked for four books by not unknown authors - Thomas Hardy, John Steinbeck, Howard Spring, Daphne du Maurier. Not one of these was obtainable. What used to be a pleasure is now a complete hazard.
