Local Liberal Democrats celebrate refurbished children’s library after successful campaign

Lynne and Gail reading with children at Muswell Hill LibraryLocal Liberal Democrats were on Friday celebrating the transformation of Muswell Hill Children’s Library after a successful four year battle to get it refurbished.

Lynne Featherstone MP and Councillors Gail Engert, Jim Jenks, and Martin Newton were chatting with excited children and parents at Friday’s special opening of the new space, which now has a medieval theme to go with a beautifully restored mural.

The children’s section, which until recently was in a sad state, with peeling wallpaper and cracked walls, finally got it’s much needed refurbishment after a successful campaign by local Liberal Democrats.

Lynne Featherstone MP comments:

“This place is just magical! And what a transformation from the rather sorry state it was in before, with peeling wallpaper and cracked walls.

“They have really done a fantastic job, and the kids who are here today clearly love it – and surely that’s what it’s all about!”

Muswell Hill Councillor Gail Engert adds:

“It’s been a long, hard battle, but I’m so proud to say it’s been successfully fought.

“This space, where I am sure hundreds and hundreds of local children will discover magical worlds and the joy of reading, will be treasured for years to come. What a success!”

  1. “This space….will be treasured for years to come”.

    Unlike the staff, who will be replaced by unpaid volunteers. That’s what I’m going to give the Lib Dems credit for.

    ps. If you want people to stop being critical why don’t you and some of you Lib Dem colleagues stand up to the Tories and reign in their idealogically driven madness. No oppostion at all from the Lib Dems re The Academies Bill, despite saying in your manifesto that you were oppposed to the Academies Expansion. Total silence and for what? A referendum on AV that the tories will oppose and also Labour will oppose because you wont stand up to the boundary changes that will advantage the Tories.
    The only Lib Dem orange I can see in this coalition is David Cameron’s tan.
