Community managed libraries
Ealing Council has announced that Hanwell, Perivale, Northfields and West Ealing, have been awarded community library status. This means that the following community groups will start to manage their local library on a volunteering basis, also offering community activities and events:
- Hanwell Library – Ealing Law Centre
- Northfields Library – Northfields Community Library
- Perivale Library – Perivale Community Hive
- West Ealing Library – Ealing CVS
Positive discussions are ongoing with another community group in relation to Pitshanger Library, which hope to be concluded early 2020.
