Sign the petition against Labour’s Library Closure – Save Brent’s Libraries:
When the Liberal Democrats took power in 2006, they scrapped plans to close Libraries (you can read the plans developed under Labour here: A vision for Libraries in Brent) – preferring to develop the Library service by making better use of existing buildings and sharing services.
Barham Library has just reopened after a refurbishment and now also houses a children’s centre and the refurbishment of Harlesden Library saw the BACES learning centre re-located there. Kingsbury Library is co-located with a One Stop Shop enabling local residents to access council services easily, without a trip down to the Town Hall.
Now Labour have taken control of Brent Council again however they have revived the plans to close libraries.
- Barham Park
- Kensal Rise
Labour are now planning a public consultation on their plans to close Libraries (from November 29th 2010 until March 4th 2011) and Liberal Democrats are urging residents who value their local Library to sign the petition against the closures.
