Our libraries have always been an important resource for all members of the community including the very vulnerable. We face their total disappearance.
On Saturday, a day of action has been called which includes Barnet Unison workers going on strike over the destruction of their library facilities. Unaccompanied children under 15 will be banned from library spaces, and there are no toilet facilities - so don't think about staying for any length of time. Staff are being replaced by technology and when things go wrong they face increasing levels of verbal abuse. Free activities for parents, learners and older people are under threat, and access to the internet or reading will even more be something those without money cannot afford to do.
