Alan Bennett and Kensal Rise Library

Alan Bennett is advertised as helping raise funds for the Kensal Rise Library campaign's legal challenge to Brent Council.  I wonder whether Mr Bennett has been made aware that the campiagn is seeking to prevent seven day opening for the majority of Brent library users, a lower level of book stock and IT, reduced outreach services, fewer events in libraries, worse accessibility for disabled people, and a greater number of library staff being made redundant.

  1. No, he's been made aware a historic library which is widely used in the community is being closed, by a narrow-minded bunch of council bigheads, who seem desperate to spend the money on a stupid vanity project no-one wants.

  2. Why don't you come along to the fundraiser and let him know? You could also take this opportunity to explain to the local community what exactly you are basing this blog post on as it bears no resemblance whatsoever to the Save Kensal Rise LIbrary campaigning I have been following for several months. Do hope you can make it.
