Finishing Work Has Started!

We are so happy to announce that the building contractors are on site NOW to start the work of turning the empty shell at Chronicle Heights into a functioning library. Sally Long, Chair of Friends of Cricklewood Library, handed over the keys today, with work anticipated to take four months. With luck and a following wind, we hope to have a finished library some time before the end of the year.

Now is the time to think about how you might light to get involved. Some of you have already volunteered for painting duties, and we’ll be coming back to you as soon as we have a date for that to start. Others have said they’d like to put their names down for a shift running the library. And some of you have said you’d like to volunteer to run a course at the library when it’s up and running. We’re seriously compiling a list of all volunteers now, and will be calling for you to register your availability on our volunteering management platform. There will be more on this in a future newsletter.
