New seating has arrived at West Hampstead Square and a new bus shelter at West End Green. Woo hoo.

And welcome to Twitter Friends of West Hampstead Library!

Coming up this week

Can’t be in two places at once, alas. On the 15th, Jim Carter is giving a talk in the library for Friends of West Hampstead Library while next door at West End Books, ace spy writer Mick Herron will be promoting his latest book.
