The Guardian’s Michele Hanson can’t quite believe what is about to happen in Brent….
with my deadline approaching and still no answer from the council, I just had to hope that Glonk was getting a bit hysterical, and this Labour borough wasn’t really planning to close six small local libraries, which it couldn’t afford, and open a grand £3m library in a palatial new £100m civic centre instead.
We’re getting virtual libraries to replace real ones. Or some of us are. Welcome to two-tier Brent.
