All Lambeth libraries are physically closed, but continue to provide a wealth of online services to library members, which are largely free.

Norwood street histories

The Norwood Society has created a unique website dedicated to history of streets in Upper Norwood, South Norwood and West Norwood and their residents. Discover the history of your house, your road, or one nearby, by visiting the site.

Waste and recycling services news

Refuse and recycling collections continue to run, thanks to the operatives. They have been getting lots of lovely messages of support and thanks for them on social media, which is really nice. If you happen to see any of them while out on your daily exercise, give them a smile and a wave - from a safe distance!  They'll really appreciate it.

Service information is being posted here.
