Waterloo Library

Waterloo Library is situated in The Oasis Centre, opposite Lambeth North tube station, in a building shared with the Oasis Hub Coffee House.

Due to the significant rise in Covid-19 cases in Lambeth, we have taken the difficult decision to close all Lambeth Libraries until further notice. We will keep this decision under review based on the Covid-19 situation in the borough and government guidance.

More information

  • A self-service library, with Lambeth librarians on site every day for up to two hours to help users, join members and answers enquiries (please check the staffed hours before visiting, as these are subject to change)
  • Regular reading groups and children's storytimes sessions.

The relocated Waterloo library will continue to provide a wide range of books for adults, children and teens, DVDs, eBooks and digital magazines and have access to computers and Wi-Fi, study space, and scanning and printing facilities.
