Save Friern Barnet library events, Sunday 26 August
The Save Friern Barnet Library campaign's determined and imaginative campaign to save their library continues. I wouldn't bet against them achieving their goal.
This Sunday 26 August they are keeping the issue in the public mind with a gathering from 2-4pm on the green outside Friern Barnet Library (we still call it that, even though it is closed for now). There will be a pop-up library, music, children's activities and a raffle! Bring a friend or two!
There will also be a tour of Friern Barnet led by Dr Oliver Natelson, the Observer's Ethical awards "Local Hero" for 2012. You need to book if you want to go on the tour, as demand is likely to be high, and I understand that there is a £2 charge for adults. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to register interest.
The afternoon also features a celebration of 100 years of the 43 bus route!
I'm planning to get along on Sunday, and looking forward to travelling on the top deck of the 43 bus with other library campaigners and bus enthusiasts (yes, even them!) all the way to London Bridge. There will be many sights to see along the way, and you will have good company.
Assemble at 4.30pm for the bus ride.
