Particularly important is the extraordinary meeting this afternoon. The campaigners to save Friern Barnet Library are discussing how to respond to the news that Barnet Council are moving quickly to flog off the building - and excluding residents from even attending the meeting where they will make that decision.
I understand that the responsible Cabinet member, Robert Rams, was the subject of a save Friern Barnet Library flashmob today outside his councillor's surgery in East Barnet. I think they were going to build him a pop-up Landmark Library!
