Good news for Preston Library but long-term arrangements still to be agreed

The video above shows, as background to the talk,  how Preston Library campaigners have created a professional looking community library in the building that Brent Council closed down. They are now looking forward to discussing the long-term future of the library with councillors and officers after their licence to use the building was extended until at least the end of July 2017. One area of uncertainty is whether the Council will keep their promise of making the premises rent-free. Without that undertaking the future of the library is in doubt.

The lead member for Stronger Communities, which covers libraries, is now Cllr Tom Miller.

There is an extra film show at the library tomorrow at 2pm (doors open 1.45pm). The film is a U certificate with a Christmas theme. 

After this the library takes a break re-opening on Wednesday January 4th.
