UPDATE ON KENSAL RISE LIBRARY
Wednesday, October 19, 2011
Yesterday, the Court of Appeal agreed to hear our appeal on Brent’s decision to close six of the borough’s libraries.
This morning, the Court also made an order to prevent Brent from taking further steps to empty out the six closed libraries until the appeal is heard, likely in early to mid-November.
In particular, Brent is not allowed to either board up the Kensal Rise Library building or remove any stock or equipment.
Over the next 24 hours, we will be taking steps to clear out the protest site, although we may continue to try to run the outdoor library service, weather and volunteers permitting.
WHILE THE IMMEDIATE CRISIS HAS TEMPORARILY PASSED, THERE IS STILL LOTS TO DO IF WE ARE GOING TO SAVE OUR LIBRARY, SO PLEASE COME ALONG TO:
SAVE KENSAL RISE LIBRARY PUBLIC MEETING
THURSDAY OCTOBER 20, 7:30 PM
ST. MARTIN’S CHURCH, MORTIMER ROAD
In the meantime, congratulations and thank you to all who have defended our beloved library!
Great update on I Spy in Queen’s Park blog
