Councillor James Powney, Brent Council's Lead Member for Environment and Neighbourhoods, said: "July is set to be another great month for Brent's libraries. Not only are there books, DVDs, CDs and ebooks to borrow or download but you can enjoy some interesting talks and events as well. All our libraries are now open for seven-days-a-week; if you can't attend any of the events in July you can still pop in to study, browse or read."
