Ealing Community Voluntary Service (Ealing CVS) is delighted
to announce they’ve been awarded the opportunity to take over West Ealing
Library and run it as a Community Managed Library. It is evident that no one wanted any of the
libraries in Ealing to close, but Ealing CVS can now assure local residents that
they are committed to ensuring West Ealing Library continues to offer a library
service. It will also, with the support
of Ealing CVS, flourish as a community hub. This will mean the library will offer
a wider range of services to local residents and one of these will include Ealing
Volunteer Centre being based at West Ealing Library. This will provide
residents with better accessibility to not just volunteering opportunities at
the library, but a wide range of volunteering opportunities across the borough.
At the request of the Council, all Ealing libraries will be closed for the forseeable future due to Covid-19. Recruitment of volunteers for West Ealing Library has been put on hold.
