A group of squatters who moved into Friern Barnet Library have been given three weeks to allow them to put together a case to stay there so they can keep it running. The decision at Barnet County Court could mean a stay of execution for the library.
Barnet Council closed it in April and wants to sell the building. However, local people have donated books to the squatters so they can keep the library running.
