I asked them about it on twitter and they said that they're planning to find a new site for the library 'soon', and pointed me to Grove Vale library (which is four miles away). In the meantime I think John Harvard library on Borough High Street is the closest. I still don't understand why Southwark Council would prefer to build a new library rather than reopen Newington Library, and there's no plan to make it part of the refurbishment of Newington Town Hall.
