Brent Fightback:BRENT COUNCIL LIBRARIES TRANSFORMATION PROJECT

Attached and pasted below is a list of the remaining meetings in Brent Council's consultation process on their proposals for closing half of the Borough's libraries. this evening's public meeting is especially important. There will be people there from the individual library campaigns.

There is a national campaign to defend libraries, the Campaign for the Book, supported by a number of authors, teachers, librarians and people who love books and appreciate libraries. It spreads news about campaigns and attached is a document suggesting co-ordinated action on February 5th.
