Read-in raises support for the fight to save Kensal Rise Library
Scores of families pledged their support for the campaign by taking out a book
Scores of families flocked to Kensal Rise Library at the weekend for a read-in to galvanise support for the fight to save the reading room.
It took place on National Save our Libraries Day, and included story reading and songs, a children’s entertainer, and quizzes.
Campaigners are fighting to save the library, which was opened by the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn author Mark Twain in 1900, after Brent Council announced plans to close it in a bid to save money.
Libraries in Barham Park, Neasden, Cricklewood, Tokyngton and Preston are also threatened with closure.
