This location has not been suitable, being a ten minute walk from West Norwood town centre. Local councillors have repeatedly pushed council officers to find a more central temporary home for the library.
We’re very pleased that council officers have agreed with local Labour councillors and West Norwood library will move to its new temporary home in the Old Library Centre on Knight’s Hill from Thursday 1st March. The library will be open Monday-Saturday.
Our absolute priority is to have the main building refurbished, repaired and reopened as soon as is practicable – and building surveys are being undertaken. In the meantime this is a positive step forward with the library service back in the heart of West Norwood where it belongs. More information is available on the council’s website.
