The £14m Canada Water Library opened last November, although its modest entrance is masked by the construction work still taking place outside, so you could be forgiven for missing the fact it's open.
Canada Water tube station, it's easily accessible on the East London Line and worth a visit, even if only for the giant wooden well that forms the central staircase up in to the library.
Although bigger and better stocked than its contemporary in Deptford, it is nonetheless designed along a similar open plan template, incorporating a cafe, studio space and lots of computers. Like Deptford, it faces on to a new public square that is not yet finished.
But the best thing about Canada Water Library is that it makes good use of its height and dockside setting, offering plenty of window seats where you can sit and read as the sun plays on the water.
