- Credit: Archant
Facility will be moved out of Willesden Green Library
The archive centre at Willesden Green Library will be closed this week and remain temporarily shut for a month.
Brent Archives, based at the library in High Road, Willesden, will be moved to a temporary centre in George Furness House, Grange Road, from next month to allow for the demolition and rebuild of the library.
However, its opening hours will be slashed by half from four days a week to two.
This Saturday, March 23, will be the last day that the centre will be open before the temporary closure.
It will re-open in its new location on Wednesday, April 24.
From then on, the archives will be open on Wednesdays (9am-8pm) and Saturdays (9am-5pm) on an appointments only basis.
