Nora’s story

Hi there,

Thank you for taking the time to check out my page. I am going to be taking part in the Blenheim Palace Triathlon in September to help raise funds for Kensal Rise Library.

Kensal Rise Library depends on donations and volunteers - it receives no regular support from the Council, since they closed it. This much-loved community library's catchment area has pockets of deprivation and over-crowded housing. It offers much-needed free computer use and study space, as well as book loans, classes and excellent events.

Raising funds has become super urgent, as the library faces a whopping £12,000 bill for the roof, which has caused flooding to the building when it rains.

If you know me then you know I am not afraid of a challenge! Please donate if you can and I look forward to seeing you at the finish line!

Best wishes,


All funds raised will be passed to the charity irrespective of whether my target is reached, not reached or exceeded.

Friends of Kensal Rise Library Limited

This is the story of how a community rescued its library - please support us!

Kensal Rise Library is run entirely by and for the community - since its closure by the Council, amid mass protest. It depends on volunteers and donations to keep going. It is free and welcoming to all in our diverse, densely populated community, providing much-needed services and exciting events in a safe, public space.

The community fought a decade-long battle to regain part of the building from the Council, freeholders and developers, and raised thousands of pounds to refurbish what had become a derelict shell. Please help us continue delivering our essential services by donating generously. We receive no regular council funding and are a completely independent community library. Thank you for your support.

Urgent Appeal! The library has to find £12,000 to pay for a new roof to stop it flooding the building underneath when it rains. Please help.

Historic Kensal Rise is the only library in the world to have been opened by the great American writer, Mark Twain (apart from his own library).

Friends of Kensal Rise Library Limited is a registered charity in England and Wales. Charity number 1141606​. Company no7566546.
