Friern Barnet Library: liberated, occupied and reopened to the public

The occupiers of Friern Barnet Library have sent out a colourful statement today, along with a link to a very good article on the Guardian website about the situation for libraries in the UK, as well as in Barnet.
The destruction of public services stops right here. After 18 months of protests fell on dead ears, the beloved Friern Barnet library ceased to operate in April. Now the library is declared liberated, occupied and reopened to the public.

Come down to browse and borrow, have your say and mobilise to save our public services. The space is available for public meetings, working groups, film nights workshops and lectures.

We are open Monday to Friday, 11 until 3. Contact us on 07592 231150.

Things we need: Volunteers, Food, Books, Donations
