Welcome to The Friends’ website

We are delighted to welcome you to The Friends of Hampton Wick Library website.

The Hampton Wick Association has set up the Friends of Hampton Wick Library to make sure that people in the Wick are aware of the Library and vote with their feet by using it. While there is no immediate threat of closure, we must make sure that our Library isn’t picked upon just because it’s small.

Our big improvement project is underway!

In September of 2019 the Friends of the Library and the Hampton Wick Association won a Community Fund grant for much needed improvements to the facilities at the Library and our Village Hall (Bullen Hall).

Now, after a lot of hard work and inevitable delays caused by COVID, the work is finally starting. It won’t be long before our Library will be able to remain open at lunchtimes (once it reopens after COVID of course!).

Click here to read all about it.

Your chance to help out

The original objective for the improvements to the facilities at the Library and Bullen Hall was to enable our Library to stay open at lunchtimes. With a larger kitchen, the Librarians will be able to eat lunch on the premises and with a volunteer to assist and provide cover from 12 noon to 2pm, the Library will be able to stay open throughout the day.

Now we need the volunteers!
Would you like to help out for a couple of hours each week or fortnight? You’d be meeting and greeting Library visitors, helping stock and organise the shelves and generally being a second person to support the Librarian on duty.

The main requirements are common sense and a friendly disposition!

Please contact us on hello@fhwl.org.uk for more information.

If you have any comments about the information on this page or any other part the website, please email hello@fhwl.org.uk.
