Anyone taking part in any of the UK Save Our Libraries campaigns on Saturday February 5?

I'll be at the Brixton library in Lambeth (which, thankfully, doesn't seem to have imminent library closures, but the budgets for books and services will be cut severely).

I will be either at Muswell Hill or Stroud Green.

I am supporting you in spirit, being on the other side of the world. Best of luck for your sweeping success!

I wasn't planning on as I didn't know about it, but may well join you in Brixton now.

The Guardian has a great interactive map to find your nearest protest:

I'm going to Sydenham (sad to see that there isn't anything going on in Penge or Anerley - as Bromley are planning to close one of these libraries).
