Paint the Library

We’re painting the library on Saturday 1 February, starting at 1000. We’re looking for anyone who’d like to help to get in touch.

If you can bring your own materials, fantastic – but some will be provided. Just wear comfortable old clothes.

We’ll provide tea, coffee and biscuits, and there will be a few laughs along the way.

To sign up, please send your full name, postcode and mobile number by email to info@cricklewoodlibrary.org,uk and say you want to volunteer for painting duty. If you think you’re ever likely to do a shift in the library when it’s open, please also say so.

We are especially keen to hear from people who have experience of leading teams on physical activities like this – you’ll need humour, tact, patience and a firm demeanour! Please get in touch!

If you can’t paint, but would like to contribute, we have a wish list over at Amazon. Even if you’re not an Amazon fan, you can view the items there and buy from somewhere else, we don’t mind.

Warm and Toasty

Visited the library today to explore the new alarm settings and view the fittings up close. It’s looking lovely, peeps, and I’m happy to report it’s nice and warm and toasty in there! The spaces are now more defined with the walls and doors up. The only bit missing is the acoustic screen separating the meeting room from the activity room at the back, but I’m happy to report we have funding for this from the Bernard Sunley Foundation, so this should be in place before we open. Which for those of you wondering [They’re ALL wondering – Ed], is likely to be around March. Ish. We’ve announced opening dates too often now for me to fall into that trap again.

Don’t forget to sign up to our volunteering pool to help paint this space soon, peeps! The link is here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScn040vtky95r1orIwCUad70hg4VmAcJxipudV9PnJeBvQbZw/viewform

Happy New Year to all from the library team. See you in there in 2020!
