Branch was closed by Brent Council in 2011
Tokyngton Library in Wembley is set to be sold to the Islamic Cultural Association.
A report due to go before the council’s executive later this month recommends the sale, although it has not yet been disclosed in what capacity it will be used or how much the council stands to make from the sale.
The news follows much speculation about the building’s future and who the council was planning to sell to.
Previously the building, in Monks Park, had security guards living inside it while its future was unresolved.
