Blue Anchor Library closure for refurbishment

Blue Anchor Library is going to be refurbished during March/April 2014 to install self service technology and to improve the layout and facilities in the library. 

The library will be closed for these essential building works from 7pm on Tuesday 11 March to Sunday 27 April inclusive.

Blue Anchor Library will reopen at 9am on Monday 28 April.

The nearest library to Blue Anchor is Canada Water.

You can use your Southwark Council library card at any Southwark library and items on loan can be renewed online or by calling 020 7525 2000. You can return items to any other Southwark library or by taking them to the My Southwark Customer Service Point at 11 Market Place SE16, where there will be a returns box.

Thank you for your support and sorry for any inconvenience caused during the refurbishment. We look forward to bringing you your new and improved library in April.
