Hornsey Library Development Project

Visitors to Hornsey library will enjoy a bright new library space and more modern facilities as part of an improvement project that will see more than £1milllion invested in the building.

Main hall perspectiveThe Grade II listed building in Crouch End will see internal improvements including new furniture and IT equipment, an improved children’s library section and a refurbished main entrance and main library, alongside essential internal and external maintenance work, roof repairs and a new heating system.
While delivering more modern facilities, the work will respect the architectural character and history of the original library, with minimum impact on the structure of the building. There are no plans for any new services to be introduced.

The improvements, due to start in January 2019, are part of Haringey Council’s commitment to investing in a modern library service.
