Croydon Local Studies Library
Croydon Local Studies Library and Archives Service is the place to come for information on Croydon and its people - past, present and future. It is open to everyone, free of charge, and you don't need a reader's ticket. There are always members of staff on duty to guide and assist, and, whether you have a general interest or a specific enquiry, we will be pleased to help you.
Booking is not necessary, but it may help if you contact us in advance to find out about the availability of material.
Material in the Local Studies and Archives is for use in the library only and cannot be borrowed.
PC's with internet access, microfilm and fiche reader/printers are available. We do not operate a booking system for these machines, but a queuing system will operate at times of heavy use.
A public photocopier and camera copying stand are available. There may be restrictions on copying certain items because of copyright regulations, or because of the fragile condition of the material.
Staff are available to assist visitors with their research. Limited enquiries can be answered by letter, phone or email. If you have more complex research needs, and are not able to visit us in person, a list of private commercial researchers is available.
The Research Room opened in its new location, on the ground floor of Croydon Clocktower, on Tuesday 10 September 2013.
Croydon museum & archives, the Museum of Croydon & the Riesco Gallery are open:
Tuesday - Saturday, 10.30am - 5pm.
Closed at other times, including public holidays.
