|Outside Kensal Rise Library last night|
Firstly thanks to everyone who has supported the vigil outside the library (especially all the brilliant kids).
This support has sent out a very important message about how much we care about what happens to our library and community and its significance has gone beyond our own neighbourhood.
Lots of library campaigners throughout England have been heartened by our actions and we have received loads of messages of support.
Great stuff Kensal Green and Kensal Rise.
As you may know our legal team are in the process of lodging an application to appeal the decision handed down by Justice Ousley on Thursday. We should know the result of this application by next week (possibly Tuesday). We would like to maintain a presence outside the library until then, not only to prevent Brent boarding up the library but also because our presence is sending out a powerful message.
We really do care about our library and how much it means to this community.
So, we need your support. For the next few days we need your help in maintaining a presence at the library. We need you there during the day for whatever time you can spare.
If you can be at the library from midnight to 5am that would be fantastic. We have people taking over at 5am.
Of course you are welcome to come at any time but midnight to dawn is when we really need help. I know this is a big, big ask but it is only for a few days.
If you do intend to come make sure you wrap up warm. IT IS COLD. We have a tent. There will be company. You could bring your car.
Kind souls have been supplying us with coffee and biscuits and chocolate.
If you find that request irresistible see you at the library maybe?
Regards and thanks,
Great write-up of the events on the I spy in Queens Park blog.
