South Norwood Old Library

Location: Selhurst Road / Lawrence Road

Known for its striking modern 1970’s “brutalist” architecture this is the site of a public library in South Norwood. The library building is arranged over five levels, split across the front and rear of the building and houses books, videos and PCs.

This library was supposed to have transferred its assets to a new multipurpose building on Station Road, but due to financial deficits of the new build, the library currently faces closure.
