national year of reading 2008 is the National Year of Reading and Waltham Forest Council are marking it by continuing to deprive the local community of a much loved and valued Library.

It’s now 1 year since the council pretended to renovate St. James St. Library, then promptly closed the doors without proper local consultation or warning.

To mark the event and continue the campaign to get it reopened, The St James Library campaign are holding a special Open air Library this Saturday from 2pm – 4pm outside the former Library itself (top of Coppermill Lane/bottom of Walthamstow market).

There will be books galore to swap, children’s activities, Carole Vincent from Big Brother will be face painting and live music too (hopefully not from Carole).

Please show your support by going along, bring a book or two or alternatively just bring yourself.
