Crystal Palace Library of Things
Now open for borrowing!
In 2017, 300 local people crowfunded nearly £10,000 to bring a Library of Things to Crystal Palace (supported by the Mayor of London, Barclays Life Skills & B&Q Sydenham). Now Library of Things, Crystal Palace Transition Town and Upper Norwood Library Hub have partnered to make it happen!
Crystal Palace Library of Things is a place where you can borrow useful Things like drills, gazebos and carpet cleaners at affordable prices and learn how to use them.
Get involved with events like DIY classes, restart parties, mending meet-ups, and lots more.
