Sex Pistols Design Legend Jamie Reid Joins Save Kensal Rise Library Campaign

By Margaret Bailey 
The legendary artist Jamie Reid – responsible for the ‘God Save the Queen’ and other iconic Sex Pistols images – has designed and donated 200 signed limited edition prints to the ‘Save Kensal Rise Library’ campaign.
 
Yet another sympathiser joins the ranks. 
 
The legendary artist Jamie Reid – responsible for the ‘God Save the Queen’ and other iconic Sex Pistols images – has designed and donated 200 signed limited edition prints to the ‘Save Kensal Rise Library’ campaign.

The prints will be sold for £30 apiece at the Masons Arms, 665 Harrow Road, London, NW10 on the evening of Feb 3. This event will also mark National Libraries Day, which falls on February 4. 

The prints will simultaneously be on sale at the Paul Stolper Gallery in Museum St, London, www.paulstolper.com and on display this week at ‘Moods of Norway’ in Los Angeles, where it will be used to highlight the belief that education ought to be universal internationally, and the plight of a London library will resonate there as much as anywhere else in the world! Images of the prints will available soon on the website www.savekensalriselibrary.org 

There will also be performers, including One Man And His Beard playing the libraries’ anthem, ‘We Need Libraries’ and local resident and Guardian columnist Tim Dowling performing banjo with Police Dog Hogan (http://www.policedoghogan.com/ ). 
 
 

Tickets are £5 each and include pub grub and are available from Queens Park Books, Salusbury Rd, NW6, L’Angolos Deli, College Rd NW10 and Minkies Deli, Chamberlayne Rd, NW10. The evening will run from 8pm to 1am.  

'Pretty Vacant'? 'No Feelings'? the Pistols could be singing about the Town Hall. 
 
Ah well, never mind the bollox come along and have some fun on the night.
 

Regarding the Parliamentary Select Committee on Culture Media and Sport enquiry into libraries (closing date 12 January), the Friends of Kensal Rise Library has submitted documentation to the committee outlining the effects on the community of the closure of the library, and a further submission has been made on behalf of the six libraries that have been closed in Brent by SOSBrent the umbrella group for the six. 

Submissions can not be published while they're being considered by the committee but when possible, it will be put on the website. 

Kensal Green/Kensal Rise Library request: 

National Libraries Day 4 February 2012

To coincide with the launch of the Jamie Reid print and to celebrate National Libraries Day we want children from Kensal Green/Kensal Rise to come up to the pop up library and unleash their creative talents to provide new artwork for the library. Some of the posters on our library are looking a bit weather worn and could do with being replaced. We will provide materials and we are hoping the children of the area will provide great artwork like they have in the past. Maybe there will be other surprises too.

All over England people will be celebrating National Libraries day, let's see if we can make a big contribution by making our library beautiful while at the same time sending out the message that we love our library and need it to stay in our community.
