The Friends of Barham Library are set to open their second volunteer library and book shop at Sudbury Town underground station.
The group has entered into a short lease with Transport for London for the shop premises at Sudbury Town station behind Nikki’s Coffee Bar.
Cllr Paul Lorber, a Friends volunteer and leader of Brent’s Lib Dems, said: “We are delighted to be expanding our services to local people in Sudbury, the home of Barham Library.
“We just need a little time to clean and furnish the new premises and hope to open up in good time for the Sudbury Arts Festival in September.”
Francis Henry, a Friends volunteer, said: “We are very grateful to Transport for London for responding so positively to our request for the premises at Sudbury Town Station.

“Our library activities will make good use of the space and bring extra life to the station.”
The volunteers have been providing a local library service since March 2012, first from temporary premises at Barham School and for the last 12 months from shop premises at 428 High Road in Wembley.
