This is a beautiful old library in London (founded As A;; Souls College,
1415). The library was opened by Mark Twain in 1900.

If you have  a strong feeling about the demise of old libraries, especially
those with a Mark Twain connection, please contact the leader of Brent

Many thanks, Heather Morgan.

Dear Sir or Madam,


In 1900, the Kensal Rise Library  in North-West London was opened by Mark
Twain.  110 years later, Brent Council plan to close this library that has
served the community well.  


There is a campaign to oppose the closure.  If someone from the Mark Twain
Library could contact the leader of Brent Council
([log in to unmask]),, I expressing sorrow at the closure of this
historic library I think this would help.  



Details of Brent's plans are at
