From Barham Community Library
We are making progress in getting our new building at 660 Harrow Road Wembley HA0 2HB ready to open as a community library in Barham Park.
Our negotiations with Brent Council are progressing and we hope to sign the Lease for the building before the end of May.
We are keen to organise our volunteer rotas and agree on our initial opening hours and activities. We will therefore hold a meeting for volunteers on Saturday 14 May at 2:30 in the afternoon at our new premises in Harrow Road. Please come along and bring anyone else you know who might be interested in getting involved.
If you cannot make it on the 14th please let me know as we plan to have other meeting days for our volunteers.
