Paddington Children’s Library is still closed. Children’s books can be returned to the adult library on Porchester Road and we have a small selection of children’s books and DVDs available for loan at this site. For a greater selection, our next nearest libraries are Maida Vale and Queen’s Park.

This is a large and busy community and children's library with a business information point. The adult library and children's library are in two separate buildings.

Children's library address:

 Westbourne Park Baptist Church, Westbourne Park Villas, W2 5EA
