The Old Library Centre

The West Norwood Free Public Library on Knight’s Hill opened on 21st July 1888 as the first public library in Lambeth. It was commissioned by Sir Henry Tate on land donated by Frederick Nettlefold, who laid the foundation stone on 26th November 1887. The building was designed Sidney Smith, architect of Tate Britain and several other Lambeth libraries.

It is a three-storey building in Classical style showing Flemish influence, and is built of red brick with terracotta and Ham Hill stone dressings. It has a colonnaded entrance loggia with an enclosed balcony above. The balcony is fronted by tapering fluted piers bearing busts of Homer, Sir Walter Scott, Chaucer, Shakespeare, Milton, Dickens and Socrates.
