London's Canada Water Library good for a free day out and a walk around London. You can join any library in London

This inverted pyramid is the magnificent library in the London Borough of Southwark - Canada Water. 
You enter from below and towering above you is a large wooden staircase which gallantly rises through the centre of the building, expanding into the top floor which has a reading gallery ringed around it.

This library is a place to relax , use your PC - they have WiFi -study, read or just sit quietly and let the world go by! There's lots of seating around the library - for you and your family or just for one! You get a feeling  of intimacy, although it's obviously a  public space, because there are so many corners and well-thought out seating areas. This building is an architectural triumph considering the small space that the architect had to work with; building up and out makes the user experience, even more thrilling than it would normally be.
Inside - Library Seating with Water View


For a bite to eat or drink, the cafe is on the ground floor serving a variety of hot and cold meals as well as beverages. You can read a book or use a computer in this space as well as the rest of the library. On the first floor there are also seats which overlook the water and offer a calm and tranquil read.
If you do not live in the borough and want to loan books/ audio, you will have to complete a FREE library card application. You will need - current proof of address, such as a utility bill and a passport or driving licence. They do not charge for you to join and you can register the children without taking proof of ID for them but you will need proof of ID.
There are plenty of activities for children to do over the summer and half-term breaks,  so get down to Canada Water library  as soon as you can. What's more, the exit from the tube station, Canada Water,  leads directly into the library!
