There is local paper coverage of the clearing of Preston Library yesterday here. It is puzzling that the campaigners are acting all surprised. It was obvious that the Council would seek to implement its policy once the legal obstructions had been removed. I understand that the Borough Solicitor told them what we planned to do before Christmas, so the attempt to pretend that they did not expect this is disingenuous.
It is also ironic that people who claim to be in favour of libraries are devoting all their energies to preventing the Council from making its book stock available to Brent residents for lending. After all, that is why the Council bought the books in the first place.
I have tried to deal with some of the issues raised by comments here.
