First look inside London's £14m new super-library

The finishing touches are being applied to London's first "super-library" ready for its opening next week. At a time of austerity measures and huge cuts to the capital's library services, Canada Water Library is set to buck the trend with 40,000 books, a cafĂ©, meeting rooms, evening class space and wi-fi facilities. Overhanging Canada Water basin, the £14.1 million building is the first library in the capital to have a purpose-built 150-seat theatre. It will also be the first to lead directly to a Tube station. Library users can bring their own laptops or use one of 40 computers or 30 laptops that are available for hire
