Library of Things is now open for borrowing from Upper Norwood Library Hub in Crystal Palace, 39-41 Westow Hill, SE19 1TJ. We'll see you there! 


Note: 90% of our Things can be carried away on foot. For the gazebo, carpet cleaner & lawnmower we recommend public transport or a vehicle.

By bicycle: There are secure D-lock bike parks outside the front of the library and in the carpark at the back. 

By public transport: Crystal Palace and Gipsy Hill train stations are both 7 minutes from the library by foot. The bus station is 3 minutes from the library by foot.

By car: There is a free carpark just behind the library that you can use whilst borrowing from Crystal Palace Library of Things. To find it, take a left off Westow Hill down Beardell Street, immediately after Upper Norwood Library Hub. Drive about 15 metres – the carpark is through a gate on your left (marked as private).

By Zipcar: The closest ZipCar is located 1 minute's walk from the library on Jasper Rd, SE19 1SQ.
