The first new library to be built in Hackney for 20 years will open in late January 2012.
This state-of-the-art facility will feature separate adult and children libraries.
As well as a wide range of books, study materials and online reference there will also be an education area.
There will also be an area for teenagers and a 'quick picks' function where visitors can issue books to themselves using modern self-service technology.
The new building will also house Hackney Archives which is moving from its previous base in De Beauvoir ward.
Further details on all the Council's libraries are available on the Hackney Council website.
