Crystal Palace Library of Things

Landing 21st April 2018!

In 2017, nearly 300 local people crowfunded over £9000 to bring a Library of Things to Crystal Palace. Now Library of Things, Crystal Palace Transition Town and Upper Norwood Library Hub are working together to make it happen!

Crystal Palace Library of Things is a place where you can borrow useful Things like drills, gazebos and carpet cleaners at affordable prices and learn how to use them.

Get involved with events like DIY classes, restart parties, mending meet-ups, and lots more.
