New East Ham library opens

The three-storey, £14.3m new library and customer service centre has opened in Barking Road, East Ham.

28 February 2014

The development brings together a state-fo-the-art library with council customer services and over 30,000 books.

Sir Robin Wales, mayor of Newham, officially opening the facility, said: “Our residents have told us that they value their libraries and easy access to council services and we’ve listened to what they’ve said. At a time when other councils have closed their libraries, we’ve kept ours open and invested heavily to make them more accessible, increased the number of computers and new books as well as enabling residents to access council services in one place.”

The open-plan library includes a large children’s library and area for activities and story telling sessions, reading and study areas plus a language lab.
