Local studies

The Research Room

We collect books, photographs, maps, newspapers and other items that are of value in the study of the past, present and future of Croydon. You do not need to be a member of the library or book to see these great resources. However, it may help if you contact us in advance to find out whether we have what you are looking for.

You cannot borrow items from our collection, but there are books on local history in the main library.

Opening hours

Croydon Museum & Archives, the Museum of Croydon and the Riesco Gallery are all open:
Tuesday - Saturday, 10.30am - 5pm.  Closed at other times, including public holidays.
