The squatters occupying the closed Friern Barnet Library are calling for people to turn out to support them at court tomorrow.

The occupiers of the Friern Barnet Road building will be appearing at Barnet Civil and Family Courts Centre in Regents Park Road, Finchley Central, at 10am.

They first appeared at court on September 18 when Barnet Borough Council began legal proceedings to oust them from the building.

Following this court appearance the hearing was adjourned for three weeks to allow the squatters to compile a defence for their occupation.

The activists have reopened the library and are lending books donated by their supporters.

They want to turn the building into a community library.
