Barnet Press: "Campaigners and children fail to halt threats to three libraries"

Link to Barnet Press

"RESIDENTS leaving Barnet Council’s cabinet meeting said they were “disappointed” by the decision to axe three libraries.

"For almost an hour, residents and local ward councillors pleaded with the senior councillors to rethink plans, which include merging Friern Barnet and North Finchley library, and relocating Hampstead Garden library.

"More than 50 residents attended the meeting at Hendon Town Hall, and some questioned the councillors on their plans, which incorporate the merged libraries into a new landmark arts-and-culture library at the artsdepot, in Tally Ho Corner, and relocate book stock from Hampstead Garden library to the Institute Arts Centre."
