1. Thank you
Thank you to everyone who came to demonstrate against the destruction of the Pop Up Library.
To our local councillors, and Cllr Roxanne Mashari the Lead Member for the Environment (which includes libraries), to our friends that tweeted support like Maggie Gee and Philip Pullman. To the volunteers from the community, special mention Josephine, who have maintained the Pop Up for three years, and most of all to the children and residents of Kensal Rise and Kensal Green, including Miss Cecilia on her first protest – 4 weeks old!
Thank you also for all the messages of support we have had from all over the country.
We are shocked and dismayed that this destruction could happen when we are supposed to be negotiating about the library space.
2. National Libraries Day Saturday 8th February, 11am at Kensal Rise Pop Up Library
The community will be out in force to repair and get re-established, the Kensal Rise Pop Up library and to help celebrate
National Libraries Day.
An opportunity to show that you love libraries including the Pop Up.
Bring balloons, ribbons, cakes, drinks, and energy.
A great chance for the community to come together and show we will not let the pop up spirit be destroyed.
3. Fraudulent emails
Great news that the Leader of Brent Council Cllr Muhammed Butt is demanding that the police reconsider their decision not to proceed with their investigation into the fraudulent use of emails to support the planning application of the developer.
We can expect a decision from the police by tomorrow morning (Wednesday). And IT experts have offered help too.
See as many of you as possible on Saturday,
