Borrow books from Westminster Chinese Library

Serving the people of Chinatown with reading material which is often hard to access, the Westminster Chinese Library, part of Charing Cross Library, houses one of the largest collections of Chinese materials in a public library in the UK.

Thousands of Chinese-speaking people come from far and wide to use the library, which offers around 50,000 Chinese language books for loan and reference, as well as mMusic cassettes, CDs, and videos.

A team of four Chinese speaking staff is on hand to help visitors, and anyone can join as long as they have proof of a permanent address somewhere in the UK. The library is open seven days a week and also has a full collection of English language books.
