Paddington Library – sparking curiosity for 130 years – an online history

Launching as part of the National Trust's Heritage Festival 2022, this suite of web pages celebrates and explores the history of Paddington Library - for 130 years a much loved destination for the curious minds of Paddington residents, young and old.

In May 1892, the aldermen of Paddington Council opened a library within the newly-built Paddington Town Hall. The Library has operated almost continuously from this base for the last 130 years, a milestone achieved on 11 May 2022. These web pages tell the story of the Library, the Town Hall and the suburb they served.
