Ye Big Olde Society: Or, A Great Saturday Night Out in Friern Barnet

News update from the Friern Library community hub (as the occupation is now named). Please note that tomorrow evening (Saturday 29th) there is a great programme on at the library featuring blogger Mr Reasonable and his 'One Barnet' magic box, and the wonderful Pete the Temp, a comic poet and singer and general bundle of energy.

I feel that we should be producing some sort of music hall style posters for the happenings at Friern Barnet Library these days. In Barnet we are back to making our own entertainment - and providing our own library services! Is this what they meant by Ye Big Olde Society?!

Get involved!
We need your help to save the library:

Sign up to the rota:  the library will be able to stay open only if we have enough people to staff it. We need people to volunteer for two-hour slots to check books in and out, accept donations, etc. If you can spare the time, please stop in at the library and sign up to the rota.

Make yourself heard: phone, email, text, tweet and visit Barnet Council and the media explaining why the library is important.

Spread the word: tell friends and neighbours about us.

Come and meet us: we have organising meetings each Monday at 6-7pm
