Victoria Library is on the busy Buckingham Palace Road close to Victoria Coach Station.
It has a large adult library on the ground floor (which hosts a monthly Book Group and regular Employment Advice sessions), and a smaller children's library (with regular Under 5s sessions). Find out about other facilities available in the library.
It also houses Westminster Music Library with its wide range of scores, orchestral sets, books on music and a large collection of Mozart sound recordings, which can be borrowed.
You can get up-to-date information about any events taking place in the library by visiting the Events at Victoria Library page, and get a flavour of some of the things we've been up to by reading the Books & the City blog.
Our libraries are closed on English Bank Holidays. For information on any other temporary changes please see the News page.
