Yesterday's post on library figures leads me to re-emphasise the point that each library is unique and that some can be better than others. A number of authorities are building new libraries, which no doubt they feel are better than the ones they replaced. Here in Brent we saw refurbishments at Ealing Road library and Kilburn library, but also totally new libraries at Willesden and Wembley. Wembley library has almost six times as many visits as the former Brent Town Hall library, making it the third most visited library in the UK, according to CIPFA.
