Chadwell Library - part of Chadwell Information Centre

Chadwell library is a part of the Chadwell Information Centre, which opened on 18 March 2002. It incorporates the community-led Chadwell St Mary Centre.

The library originally opened in its current premises on 8 December 1964, replacing a smaller building in the nearby shopping parade, which had opened in January 1937.
