Poetry Collection

Lambeth's West Norwood Library holds an enhanced Poetry Collection containing a wide selection of poetry; from the best-loved prize-winning poets to others you have yet to discover. The Library also houses the BBC Poetry Please programme and a 'Listening Post' facility so you can sit back and lose yourself in poetry.

The Library's poetry collection can be accessed from the West Norwood Library shelves or by placing a free reservation at the Carnegie Library. You can start by searching for poetry on the Lambeth Library Catalogue.
