While work continues on the Reading Rooms and The Library House in Kensal Rise, The Friends of Kensal Rise Library are busy raising funds to fit out their new library.
The local community has been hard at work baking cakes, running pub quizzes, hosting talks with famous actors and a group of entrepreneurial school children have even been selling lemonade, and so far they have successfully raised over £45,000! But they need your help to reach their target of £80,000 by the end of July, so dig deep and donate here on their fundraising page.
The £80,00 they need will be used to cover the basic fit-out including flooring, plumbing, heating, plastering and decorating. And of course to help them fill their shelves with books. In the words of one donator:
"Every community deserves a library. It should be a right not a privilege."
We couldn't agree more. If you think so too and would like to help, grab your purse and donate here.
