The Guardian: "Squatters reopen Friern Barnet library after council closes service"

Link to The Guardian web site

"A group of eight squatters entered the north London library last week, through an open window. Since the law changed on 1 September, making it a criminal offence to squat residential properties, they have turned to commercial properties to find a bed for the night.

"The occupation has the blessing of many local residents, who are delighted to see the locked doors of the library flung open once again. It's the first time that squatters have morphed into 'community librarians', by occupying and reopening a public lending resource in this way. Book loans will be manually recorded and stamped."

Getting fined by Barnet.
