Friends Of Cricklewood Library

To advance education for the public benefit, in particular, but not exclusively, by providing a lending library and reading room and facilities for educational and cultural activities for the residents of the Cricklewood area of the London Borough of Brent and neighbouring districts and for persons who work in or have a connection to the area. We are working to reopen the library in a new building on the site of the one closed by Brent Council in 2011.

Founded 2016

  • Mission statement

    We are a non-profit organisation campaigning to restore a community library and secular meeting place to the heart of Cricklewood. The library will be open, accessible and welcoming and will provide much-needed access to books, IT equipment, education, training and volunteering opportunities. We will work with all sections of our diverse and vibrant community, and will work to extend our reach to sections of the community which would otherwise not be served; those with young children, non-native English speakers, those at risk of isolation through age, infirmity or financial hardship.

  • Aims

    Friends Of Cricklewood Library aims to:

    • To reduce social isolation, improve access to information and training, and improve literacy rates.
    • To enrich the cultural life of the community.
    • To improve quality of life for all who live in Cricklewood.
