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 Library re-opens!

It’s been 16 months since Hampton Wick Library closed for the first COVID lockdown in March 2020. It has remained closed … until now! July 2021 sees our Library coming back to life.

Our Library is now open once again so do drop in to say hello to the Library team and to remind yourself what it’s like to browse the bookshelves, sit and read a paper or use the PCs.

The Friends of the Library Gardening Gang have been in to tidy up so don’t forget to check out the lovely, secluded and fragrant garden while you’re there.

During the closed period, the HWA/Friends of the Library project to improve the facilities at the Library and Bullen Hall has started and is now (almost!) complete.

Lunchtime opening isn’t happening quite yet, but we have a team of volunteers ready and waiting and it shouldn’t be too long before our Library can open all day long,

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