Council Executive Meeting – Monday 11 April

by barhamlibrary

The decision on the future of Barham and the other 5 Libraries under threat of closure will be made on Monday 11 April.

The 10 Councillors who make up the Brent Council Executive will consider a recommendation to close the 6 Libraries.

The recommendation for closure comes despite the fact that over 80% of respondents to the Council’s Consultation opposed the closures.

Local residents are being urged to attend the Monday 11 April Meeting to protest against the closure and show the strength of local feeling. The meeting starts at 7p.m. (although Library supporters are urged to come early and protest outside the town Hall from 6p.m. onwards).

The meeting is open to the public but as space is limited it will be allocated by the Council on a 1st come first serve basis.

Wembley Park underground is a few minutes walk away and buses 83, 182, 245 and 297 amongst other stop right outside.

Sudbury resident Vi Steel, and supporter of Barham Library said “It will be a tragedy if any of the local community libraries are closed. They have served local people for many years – over 100 hundred years in the case of Kensal Rise Library. I am determined to do my best to support the campaign to save them”.
