Stop Press! Library OPENS!

Monday, March 12th, 2012

Before I moved out of London, I lived in a house-share in Rotherhithe, East London. A place that recommended itself to me for its links to central London (I particularly liked the bus routes which took in London and Tower Bridges and the old wharf buildings), relatively cheap rent and proximity to then-boyfriend. What I can’t say was a big draw was the library, tucked away in an unprepossessing building over the road from the then-closed Rotherhithe underground station. It was small, crowded and left an overall dim impression on me. So I was pleased to see the news of the opening of the new Canada Water incarnation. Refreshing to hear of a library revamp and reopening isn’t it?

And Southwark Council have picked Canada Water Library as the Library of the Month with extra events running this March – click here for more details!
