Our recent animation about the events surrounding the closure of Kensal Rise library.
Everyone here is putting a huge amount of energy into the campaign and we hope that our contribution might raise awareness even further afield, so please watch the film, share it and sign the Change.org petition if you haven’t already (change.org/petitions/all-souls-college-oxford-university-save-kensal-rise-library).
Updates available on our Twitter feed, and join in the discussion on our Facebook group (link on the right)
