Cricklewood Library is set to hold an Irish-themed fundraiser.
It takes the form of a ceilidh on April 13 at the Clayton Crown Hotel, in Cricklewood Broadway.
The library itself, built in 1929, was shut in 2011. But last year the Friends of Cricklewood Library (FoCL) raised £113,000 through crowdfunding, including £40,000 from the Mayor of London, to reopen it.
They have also won two previous bids from the Brent Community Infrastructure Levy.
The event will start at 8pm, and tickets cost £12 for adults, and £10 for concessions.
Chair of FoCL Sally Long said: “We continue to fundraise to meet the costs of fitting out the library premises, which is being provided as a shell. The library space is in a newly built development, but there are some issues that we are in the process of resolving with the building’s owners, Octavia Housing. Meanwhile we are working with our architects to develop the plans.”
The ceilidh starts at 8pm. Tickets are at cricklewoodlibrary.org.uk/events.
