Invitation – Friern Barnet Pop up Library – Official opening 11am this Saturday


You are cordially invited to the official opening of the worlds very first Pop Up Library at Friern Barnet on Saturday 14th April (map).

Please come on down to the Library on Saturday between 11am and 1pm. It’ll be on the green next to the library. Please note that the Pop Up Library is not a replacement, it is a way for the community to show that we need a real, fully functional library at the site, run paid professionals. Certain local Tory activistst are peddling the myth that anyone can run a library, nothing could be further from the truth. Consider the pop up library as us giving CPR to the library, to keep it alive until it is reopened, nothing more.

The excellent Barnet Eye will be making a film of the days activities and will be asking local councillors and members of the public to tell us why they love their librarys, what their fondest memories of their library are and why they need a LOCAL library.

there’s a piece on this in the Barnet Times for more info and a petition to re-open the library here.
