Hanwell, Northfields, Northolt and Perivale library buildings 'stay open' (UK)

Campaigners who fought to retain four libraries in a west London borough have said they are "absolutely thrilled" that the facilities look set to remain. The future of the libraries in Hanwell, Northfields, Northolt and Perivale was being considered by Ealing Council after it made £22m of cuts in 2011-12. But deputy leader Ranjit Dheer has recommended all four are kept open, ahead of a vote on the issue on 5 July. About 1,500 people signed a petition calling for the libraries to be saved. Carolyn Brown, from Hanwell, who has been at the forefront of the campaign, said the proposal would particularly benefit children - BBC
