Parents and children are continuing to defend Kensal Rise Library. If you are in the area, please come and show your support!
Local councillors Claudia Hector, Bobby Thomas, and James Powney are nowhere to be seen. Brent Council leader Ann John, who planned the closures over ten years ago, is facing mounting criticism and pressure, as national press attention continues. Contractors tried to board up the library again but were prevented by children, who are protesting outside the library.
Kensal Green has one of the highest child illiteracy rates in the capital, and young people make up a large proportion of Brent library users.
The fight goes on – if you’re in the area, please come and show your support!
