What’s On at Your Library

Reminder from the Upper Norwood Library Hub

The 2nd phase of our refurbishment is underway. Starting on Monday 20th, it is due to last approximately 3 months.

CLICK HERE to see an artist’s impression of how it’s going to look when it’s finished!

During this time there will, unfortunately, be no lending service, librarians or computer access due to the inevitable disruption and health and safety concerns. We know how important these services are to the local community and regret the inconvenience this will cause, but promise that it will be worth the wait and your patience will be rewarded!
