Cricklewood Library meeting tonight (Tuesday)

Message from Friends of Cricklewood Library:

A new library is going to be open in Spring next year in Olive Road! It has taken around five years, but it's going to happen. There is a meeting at 7.30 tomorrow in Cricklewood Library for all interested residents and supporters of the library. The new library will be completely self-funding and run by the community.

A new developer has taken over the project and building of four storey mixed development will start soon. The developer will present the plans and explain the building process.

Friends of Cricklewood Library have been named tenants of the 2000ft2 library/community space which will occupy the majority of the ground floor, and they will talk about how the space will be used and all suggestions regarding use of the space are welcome.

In order to set up the library FOCL need to raise a substantial amount of money, and this will be the start of an ongoing fundraising appeal needed to make sure the library is a success.


  1. Who's the new owner/'developer'?

    This all sounds iffy: 'A new library is going to open'... followed by' 'a substantial sum of money' being needed for 'set up'. If it isn't raised, it seems the library will go the way of the birds...

    1. Why substantial money has to be raised ?

      Space not now on a peppercorn rate ?

      How dare the new developer !

  2. From the artists impression of development it is now 4 storys high !

    Was planning permission given for 4 story's?
