No Brent Libraries Court Ruling until October
It has been confirmed that the judge's decision in the Libraries Judicial review case has been delayed until October.It will be given some time after October 2nd when the new judicial term begins. As Brent Council promised to keep the libraries open until the decision this means that the Summer Reading Scheme should go ahead as normal at the six threatened libraries. Bindmans the solicitors handling the case will have talks with Brent's solicitors to ensure that no significant damage is done to the Brent library service in the meantime.
The financial appeal for the SOS Brent Libraries fund now stands at more than £20,000, two thirds of the way to the target. More may be needed if the case goes to appeal
