Project launched to improve library services for Dollis Hill residents
Residents in Dollis Hill will soon be able to pick up or borrow a book in their local shops and eateries thanks to a new project to improve library services.  The Dollis Hill “‘Love Books”  Project will see books from Brent’s Library Service collected and brought to the area’s cafés, eateries and shops. They can then be used like a library where regulars can borrow and read books based on a trust basis.
