There is no wheelchair access but we can make our material available at another Westminster library branch upon request.

There are two steps at the entrance, then six steps immediately inside the building to the ground floor. The library is on three floors with stairs to all levels but there is no lift. You can find the following collections on each floor:

  • ground floor: general reference material, government publications, legal and business information
  • first floor: performing arts, fine art, design and photography collections
  • second floor: a quiet reading and study area and a collection of art books for loan
