We hope you’re having a good summer and enjoying the weather, and particularly the park – how lucky we are to have Gladstone Park to escape to.

Despite all that, we’ve got our Back to School hats on and are thinking about the opening of the library, which, despite nasty Covid-19, draws ever nearer. We’re aiming for September. With that in mind, we’d like to update you on our plans.

The three library spaces (main library space, activity room and meeting room) will all eventually be available for hire, but we’ll be starting with the activity room at the back of the building.

We are working on our health and safety policy which will outline the measures we will take to ensure that staff, volunteers, facilitators and users are safe. This will include cleaning between activities, providing handwashing stations and hand sanitisers, use of PPE and social distancing.  We will also be following Brent Libraries’ guidelines on track and trace.


We’d like to hear from you if you have any ideas about using the space for a limited number of people for your activities. You may also want to offer activities via Zoom or even a combination, for example, recording your activity as it takes place. We can support you with using Zoom if you’re not already familiar with it.


The rate will depend on which space you would like to use and the number of participants you expect to have. Please contact email hidden; JavaScript is required if you would like to discuss this. We look forward to hearing from you.
