clapton library

We’re back!

The new and improved Clapton Library will reopen on Monday 22 February 2010

Please join us to celebrate our new modern library featuring an even greater range of your favourite books, CDs and DVDs, a new self-service for loaning and returning stock and upgraded IT facilities all within a revamped energy efficient building.

Restoration and improvements

When the library reopens, the building will be approximately one third bigger than at present and will include dedicated study and IT areas, a space for teenagers and a meeting room available for hire. The library is now fully accessible, and toilets and baby changing facilities are available.

Working with Shepheard Epstein Hunter, a large architectural practice with extensive experience of library design, Hackney council has restored the grade II listed building to reveal many historical features which have been hidden for over thirty years, whilst offering 21st century facilities. A single storey structure to the east of the existing library, formerly used as a battery room in the days when Hackney Council generated its own power, has been incorporated into the library. A sensitively designed extension has been constructed above the battery room, and the whole site has incorporated energy savings features.

There is also an improved range of books, CD and DVDs. Customers will have the choice of issuing and returning stock themselves, rather than queuing for the counter, and there will be an exciting range of events and exhibitions.

MP David Lammy says British-born workers aren't interested in low-paid jobs- 'they'd rather watch X-Factor' - do you agree?
