The group has 24 hours to leave the library, after which it will become a police matter, a spokesperson from Lambeth Council confirmed.

Lambeth Council says the occupation is "misleading" as the Carnegie will only close for a year, before re-opening as a "healthy living centre".

Lambeth Council says the occupation is "misleading" as the Carnegie will only close for a year, before re-opening as a "healthy living centre".
Nostalgic photos showing the heroic actions of firefighters from London Fire Brigade have been released to mark its 150th anniversary.

The opening night of a production of Lucia di Lammermoor has been booed by the audience at the Royal Opera House.
The production of Donizetti's tragic opera, directed by Katie Mitchell, had been preceded by warnings of explicit sex scenes and violence.
Charlotte Higgins, chief culture writer for the Guardian, told the Today programme the performance was "booed as much as it was cheered" and was "inescapably violent and unpleasant".
Police and forensic officers are investigating parts of the Southwark Street Estate where human remains were found in the search for missing PC Gordon Semple.

Crystal Palace will be hoping to halt their dramatic slide down the table as they welcome Norwich.
Chelsea will be without strikers Diego Costa and Loic Remy as they take on 15th place Swansea.

All drivers have to learn the rules of the road in a vehicle of some sort.
But for some of London's wealthiest motorists, the idea of passing your test after learning in a clapped out banger doesn't quite cut it.
Martin Harris, who lives on the Peabody Estate, told reporters about how he confronted a man arrested on suspicion of murder, in the search for missing PC Gordon Semple.
The family of the Met officer have said the human remains found in the flat are those of the missing PC.
Lambeth Council has released a statement following the order granted to evict protesters from Carnegie Library.
An Interim Possession Order has been granted by the court and we will be serving it to the occupiers later today.

An eye specialist has denied killing an eight-year-old patient by "gross negligence".
Locum optometrist Honey Rose, 34, from Newham, is charged with the manslaughter of Vincent Barker on 13 July 2012.
Vincent died at his home in Ipswich after it is understood he was taken ill at school.

Ms Rose spoke only to plead not guilty to the charge at the Old Bailey.
The trial will begin on 4 July.
Caroline Pidgeon has had her turn answering Norman Smith's questions in a black cab.

An Interim Possession Order sought by Lambeth Council gives protesters 24 hours to leave the occupied building in Herne Hill.
If the protesters refuse to comply with the order their occupation would become a police matter, Lambeth Council said.
Protesters have been occupying Carnegie Library since 31 March, the date on which the library was officially due to be closed for refurbishment to convert it into a gym and community library facility.
The man living in the flat where human remains were found answered the door wearing blue- Speedo-style swimming trunks.
Scaffolder Martin Harris said he was staying with his brother on the Peabody Estate and had been concerned by a "stench of death" coming from the flat below, so he knocked on the door to ask the owner about it.
Coming up on BBC London News this lunchtime:
We'll have the latest from Carnegie Library in Herne Hill which protesters have been occupying following its closure.
And we'll meet a 28-year-old man who has spent the part two years building an elaborate mud hut near Watford, but has been told he's got to leave.

BBC Radio London Political Reporter
At BBC Radio London’s mayoral debate this morning housing again led the discussion.
We got a pledge NOT to raise council tax by the maximum 2%, from Labour’s Sadiq Khan if he wins next month.
The Liberal Democrat Caroline Pidgeon re-emphasised her promise to retain the £20 a year precept introduced a decade ago to help pay for the Olympics, which she says she would put towards house building.
We also found out how much division there is among the candidates over the cause of London’s housing crisis.
UKIP’s Peter Whittle blamed immigration, accusing the other candidates of "being in denial" about what he called the "unprecedented" level of migration.
A view not taken kindly by Liberal Democrat Caroline Pidgeon, who accused him of being “obsessed by immigrants”, while the Green Party’s Sian Berry claimed that some people use housing “to drive wedges between communities”
The notable absence was that of the Conservative candidate Zac Goldsmith. He was invited to take part in the debate on Vanessa Feltz breakfast show, but chose not to attend.
There are 12 candidates standing to become the next Mayor of London. All the candidates are listed here
The man arrested where remains were discovered in the search for missing PC Gordon Semple had put scented candles outside his door to disguise a smell, a resident on the Peabody Estate told the Press Association.
Heather Brown, who lives in the block next door, said her neighbour had noticed a "terrible smell", and when they confronted the flat owner "he said he was just cooking".
Ms Brown, who has lived on the estate for 30 years, said the housing block was normally a "very quiet place" where there were "never any problems".
The brother of PC Gordon Semple has written a statement on Facebook about the police officer.
Gordon will be sadly missed by all of his immediate family, his colleagues in the Met Police, former Bank of Scotland colleagues in Inverness & London, friends from his Tartan Army Days, but most of all the hardest loss is for Gary at this time. Gordon was a much loved Partner, Brother, Brother-in-Law, Uncle & Cousin and our world will be a worse place without him.
New research by Battersea has revealed only 1 in 5 lost dogs have any chance of being reunited with their owners after figures from Local Authorities showed the majority of dogs either don’t have microchips, or the chip is out of date.

This week, Zac Goldsmith and Sadiq Khan both flumped questions on a quiz about the city they hope to become mayor of in May.
It's not the first time a politician has stumbled in this way, with David Cameron, Ed Miliband and Boris Johnson among who have made gaffes in the past.
The streets around New Scotland Yard were closed earlier because of a suspect package.
St James' station was shut and police deployed a bomb disposal robot.
However, witnesses said the package turned out to be a rucksack which somebody had accidentally left at a taxi rank.
The roads and station have now been reopened.
Bafta-nominated Slumdog Millionaire star Dev Patel says his latest role is "quite the irony".
The Harrow-born actor said: "My dad is an accountant and I always let him down because I'm horrendously atrocious with maths".
He plays mathematician Indian Srinivasa Ramanujan in the new film The Man Who Knew Infinity.
Friends and people who knew and had worked with PC Gordon Semple have paid tribute to him on Facebook, after human remains were found during the search for the Met officer.
Nigel Lewis said: "Deeply disturbing and saddening news after 9 years working with Gordon. The community he served will be as shocked as the rest of us. RIP."
Andy Dighton wrote: "RIP mate. Sunday lunch time will never be the same again. Love to Gary and the Semple family."
Kathy Whittington said: "Absolutely devastated that I'm not going to see your face at work anymore Gordon! Much love goes out to your family at the very difficult time xx."
Protesters inside a south London library will find out whether they will be evicted later today after camping out there for over a week.
Campaigners at Carnegie Library in Herne Hill, are still refusing to leave the premises over Lambeth Council's decision to close it for a year.
The council has previously called the protest "misleading" saying the closure is temporary and it will reopen in 2017 with a gym. But protesters say they want a library instead.
The council is seeking an eviction order from the court later.
The debate comes to a close with a discussion about tax havens.
We'll put a link up to watch the debate on iPlayer shortly.
The candidates were all asked about whether they'd scrap the Garden Bridge over the Thames.
Peter Whittle, Sian Berry and Peter Whittle say they all would get rid of it.
Sadiq Khan is the only supporter but says it should be a cheaper walkway for pedestrians and cyclists.
Sadiq Khan says London needs a modern and affordable transport network. He accuses TfL of being "flabby".
Caroline Pidgeon says she will introduce half-price fares on the Tube and a one-hour bus ticket.
Sian Berry says there are holes in inner London transport system and says she'd introduce a "smart congestion charge".
Peter Whittle says the transport system needs upgrading but opposes "vanity projects" like the cable car which he says is "like empty matchboxes across the sky".
The debate has moved on to transport and the struggles of the black cab trade.
Sadiq Khan says London has had a "rubbish mayor" for the last few years, which has affected the black cab trade.
Sian Berry agrees and called for investment in electric vehicles.
Peter Whittle says there needs to be a level field for all minicab firms.
Caroline Pidgeon says she will crack down on loop holes to stop rogue cabbies.
Sian Berry says some people use the excuse of the housing shortage to "drive wedges" between people.
She receives an angry response from Peter Whittle who said "how dare you accuse me of driving wedges" and accused Ms Berry of supporting open borders.
