National Libraries Day - party at FBL, Saturday 9 February

Press release from Friern Barnet Community Library:

Party in the library!

Saturday 9th February 2013 from 2pm

Join our party celebrating National Libraries Day and the re-opening of Friern Barnet Community Library - The People's Library. It was closed by Barnet Council on 5th April despite a huge campaign. On 5th September it was occupied and liberated by Occupy London activists and 5 months later the Council granted a license to trustees of Friern Barnet Community Library Ltd and was marked by the keys being handed over from Occupy to the community on 5th February 2013. We are currently negotiating the terms of the lease and are continuing to fight for a paid Council librarian.
Come along for party nibbles, children's activities, board games and a library-themed quiz kicking off at 2pm. And make sure you leave a message on our video message board too!

Please spread the word!
FBCL is currently open Mon-Sat 11am-7pm
National Libraries Day logo and strapline "use it. love it. join it!"
