We are SO excited!

We are so excited to have been selected for this round of the Co-op Local Community Fund. Funding for the library will come from Co-op Members. The Co-op gives 1% of everything their members spend on Co-op branded products and services to a local cause they choose – and you’ll be able to choose Cricklewood Library as your cause from 9 April to 7 October 2017.

To support us, visit www.coop.co.uk/membership and choose us as your good cause!

Charity Pub Quiz Date Announced

We’re very pleased to announce that NW2 Residents Association are supporting the Friends of Cricklewood Library campaign by organising a pub quiz with all proceeds going towards funding the reopening of the library.

The pub quiz will be at The Queensbury, 110 Walm Lane (opposite Willesden Green tube station) on Tuesday 9 May, from 1930 onwards. There will be a raffle and fantastic prizes to be won, and we’re lucky enough to have Shaun Wallace of The Chase making an appearance.

So, get your teams together, choose a name and bring along your thinking caps for the Quiz of the Year. Maximum team size 6 persons, £5.00 entry fee per person.

Can you help us get this poster EVERYWHERE?

We need volunteers to get this poster in as many locations as possible, as soon as possible! Click on the image to download.

We’re very excited to announce that we have been nominated for an Aviva Community Fund award. https://community-fund.aviva.co.uk/voting/project/view/16-926. If we get enough votes, our application will go to a panel of judges who will decide whether we win or not. If we’re successful, it could mean up to £25,000 worth of funding for the new library, which would go a long way towards providing shelving, seating, flooring, books and other necessities for your new community library.
