Friern Barnet Library - Occupied and Open - Book launch
Friern Barnet Library - Occupied and Opened - edited by Rosie Canning. Anniversary of the occupation of the library and preview of book Thursday 5th September 2013,7pm in the library, Friern Barnet Road London N11 3DS. All welcome
Telling the story of how Robert Rams and Barnet Council closed Friern Barnet Library, the local community protested, the Occupy movement repoened the library and how Robert Rams and Barnet Council caved in to the pressure.
The book is edited by Rosie Canning and features extracts from the Barnet Eye blog. We are hoping that Councillor Robert Rams will come along to apologise for his horrendous error of judgement in closing the library and thank the Occupy Movement for helping him see sense.
