Notes from the library

Tonight we had our usual Monday night meeting at Friern Barnet Peoples Community Library.

We talked about the court case Wednesday 10th October, 10am, St Mary's Court, Regents Park Road, Finchley Central, London N3 1BQ.

I heard how a local resident had lost his house at the weekend due to a fire. This was not all. He is seriously ill and has not got long left to live. Apparently when the library used to be open, he was a regular user and was well-known by staff. They would have most definitely have seen his health was deteriorating and would have alerted neighbours or friends. This shows just what a 'community library' is all about. This man could have been saved - the persistent cuts imposed by Roger Rams have put this man's life in jeopardy.

If you care about libraries come and support us at court on Wednesday and in the evening let's hope that we will be celebrating at 8.30pm with Andre Espeut and Didjitalis - a vision in sound! The band that takes dance music to new heights with its powerful blend of live organic and electronic grooves.
