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!”
