Saved ! Thank you all for making this happen
5th February 2013 marks a momentous day of hope with the transition of the Occupy group handing over to the community the running of the library with agreement from Barnet council. It was an historic day when our library had been given a final reprieve from closure, following negotiations between Barnet Council and a local community group representing different parts of our diverse area in Friern Barnert that included SFBLG.
Whilst our campaign had always maintained a need for a public service library with a qualified librarian as the best option, we hope this can still be achieved with futher negotiatons from all interested parties. It just goes to show how by all parties working together, something truly amazing can be achieved, well done and thank you!
We've reached our goal of reaching 7000 signatures, on our last count. Well done and thank you all. We even had Prunella Scales and David Nicholls sign our petition. If you add you name to the petition, you could just have given back and reopened our beloved Friern Barnet library.
