Brixton Library

in the Gallery Next Door to The Ritzy, Brixton Oval

10 - 4PM


The Brixton Library (also known as the Brixton Tate Library) is a public library in the London Borough of Lambeth in Brixton, South West London. It was built in the 1890s by the sugar magnate Sir Henry Tate and is a Grade II listed building.

Dame Amy Tate had bought the land in front of the library in 1904 and created a public garden, with a bust of Tate at its centre which now stands in front of the library.

The theatre next to the library was destroyed by bombing in 1940, allowing the nearby cinema to expand into its place. This cinema is now known as the Ritzy cinema, of which the bar and café now stand on the theatre’s former site. The library has been Grade II listed since 1999.

Today the library houses a collection of books that include a reference encyclopaedias, as well as books in Bengali, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish. The building is wheelchair accessible and has computers and internet access for users.

The library also offers free digital skills training and hosts live music performances and other events.

Brixton is a lively district filled with attitude and authenticity. The past few decades have seen it evolve into one of London’s coolest areas. Although it sits comfortably at the end of the Victoria line, Brixton has an off-the-beaten-track feel to it, with its exotic food markets and eclectic shops, bars and restaurants.

A great mix of cultures makes up this tight-knit neighbourhood. where Caribbean, African, European and South Asian communities all play a part in creating the music, shopping, food and clubbing scene.
