Friern Barnet pop-up library, 11am-1pm, Saturday 14 April

The "Barnet Eye" blogger Roger Tichborne and Save Friern Barnet Library campaign have organised a pop-up library at Friern Barnet tomorrow, Saturday 14 April. It will be in front of Friern Barnet library, recently closed by Conservative Barnet Council.

Get along there for fun and bookswapping; I think this will be the first of many such events. But tomorrow is the official opening. Come and support the campaign to re-open the library.

Roger has sent the following invitation to all of Barnet's councillors:
You are cordially invited to the official opening of the world's very first Pop Up Library at Friern Barnet on Saturday 14th April. This will give you a chance to meet the people of Barnet and discuss how passionately they feel about the provision of local library services and why Barnet Council should be expanding and not closing libraries.

We will be making a film of the day's activities and we will be asking local councillors and members of the public to tell us why they love their librarys, what their fondest memories of their library are and why they need a LOCAL library.

The Barnet Eye looks forward to seeing you at this truly unique event. With the forthcoming GLA elections, we hope that councillors of all partys take the opportunity to meet members of the public in a relaxed and happy environment and listen to their views.
