Link to Barnet Press
(on the assumption their story is updated)

"The trustees of Friern Barnet Community Library have now received an amended licence from the London Borough of Barnet, to allow them to be in the library legally.

"They will have two weeks, with the promise of a renewal of the licence if necessary, to negotiate a lease and other matters. LBB has shown a willingness to amend the licence to their satisfaction.

"There was a meeting tonight (Thursday) at 7 pm, where it was agreed that Occupy will hand over the keys to the building on:

Tuesday 5 February
at 12-midday


"The local residents thanked Occupy for a fantastic occupation.

"Occupy encouraged Friern Barnet Community Library to continue to fight for a paid librarian, and said this victory was not just about a local library but about the national campaign to save libraries everywhere."
