Norbury Library Refurbishment

Norbury Library

Norbury Library is to close temporarily for refurbishment work from Monday 2nd September 2019 until Spring 2020.

The library upgrade will include a refreshed book stock, new spaces for community use and a new, faster IT network, as well as bringing the upstairs community room back into use.

For the first time Open + technology, set to be installed during the works, will allow residents with a library card out of hours access to the library.

As part of the refurbishment, new lighting and frameless glass doors will bring more light into the building, and the children’s library will move into a new vibrant and colourful space. However, Croydon Council says the works will respect the building's distinctive 1930s style.

While it is closed, residents will be able to use a pop-up library at the nearby Harlow Hall on Oak Hill Road, SW16 4PY.

The pop-up library will be open from 9am to midday on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, though residents will also be able to use other libraries in Croydon during their usual opening times.

Residents may also visit nearby Thornton Heath and Broad Green libraries. Broad Green Library will be open additionally on Thursdays from 9am to 7pm.
