Adele Parks at Kilburn Library

Adele Parks has kindly agreed to be the guest speaker at the launch day of the refurbished Kilburn Library today.  She should be there round about 1.30.  Incidentally, the latest figures for library visits show only a 4% drop in August this year compared to August last year. Many people will find this hard to believe, as they assume that having 12 libraries last year must mean a bigger drop now that we have only six libraries this year.  Still more striking, Kilburn Library was not open at all during that time because of all the building work, so the comparison is actually between 5 and 12.  It does indicate that one of the essential principles of the Libraries Transformation Project was correct. People will travel to a library if they think the offer is good enough.
