Return Cricklewood Library to the community that built it

This petition had 546 supporters

A library opens up a world of opportunities and brings communities together. Cricklewood Library was built by the community in 1929, to serve the community growing around it. This richly diverse community continues to grow, but the library was shut in October 2011. The popular pop-up facility continues with volunteers providing books to readers, and is much used by locals. Follow us on fb for news.

The Friends of Cricklewood Library is working to save it for the community, to continue encouraging literacy, lifelong learning and research, by establishing, a mixed-use building, including a community and children’s library. In order to do this we are asking All Souls to return the building to the community. It can be the Serapeum to your Alexandria. 

The returning of Cricklewood Library to the community, will enable the community to continue to honour the Fellows of the College while serving and promoting the educational purposes of All Souls.
