A vocal community held a Christmas carol-singing session outside their pop-up library on Sunday.
Friends of Cricklewood Library (FOCL) organised the festive event which also including delicious mince pies and apple juice.
FOCL was formed after Brent Council axed their library in Olive Road, alongside branches in Kensal Rise, Neasden, Preston, Barham and Tokygnton, to save £1million in 2011.
The building is now being managed by property developer Andrew Gillick who withdrew an application to demolish it and replace it with 10 flats and a multi-functional 2,000 square feet community hub in October.
He is expected to reveal reviewed plans shortly.
