The Council has announced a consultation to close 7 libraries including Northfields Library, unless a community group can be found to run them.

Details here with a council-run public meeting on Tuesday 12 March 5:30-7:30pm at Kingsdown Methodist Church Northfields Ave W13 9PR.

In 2011 those with a long memory will remember that we ran a successful campaign that persuaded the Council to keep open Northfields Library when they put it under threat.At that time no community groups came forward to run the Library and the Council relented and it has remained open .I am so keen to keep open Northfields Library that I have already put several people in touch with the Council’s head of libraries.

If you know any group who might be interested I would gladly put them in touch with council officers. However, given the experience from last time, I am not that hopeful, but I'd like to be proved wrong.

So we ask you to sign the petition to keep open the Library if no community group comes forward with a realistic plan. Please sign the Petition here
