THE FUTURE AND VALUE OF LIBRARIES: Wed 14 January 7 pm, Hartley Hall, Flower Lane, Mill Hill, NW7 2JA

A public meeting hosted by Save Mill Hill Library group.

On the panel will be authors Deborah Moggach and SF Said alongside Andrew Dismore AM, Matthew Offord MP and other local politicians.

RVSP here.


With a current total of 6,383 signatures online and on paper, we are almost at that Golden 7,000. If reached we will be able to dominate proceedings at the Full Council Meeting ensuring Councillors can hear how much Barnet residents value their libraries.

We cannot win with this alone. Councillors need to hear from residents about how they love and value their libraries in their own lives. Writing to councillors is an excellent way of ensuring they hear these views.

We strongly recommend you write to your councillors explaining why you think the libraries should remain open. A personal story can make such an impact as it brings to life how disastrous their proposals are. Remember; we were promised a council tax cut because savings were made, not at the expense of our treasured services. The 21p a week savings on our council tax bill, when combined, could cover the proposed library cuts. Here is a list of councillors and their emails;
