The future of the building that was formerly Enfield Highway Library

Details of the consultation

The building that was previously Enfield Highway Library (258 Hertford Road) was officially opened in May 1910, although the date on the building is 1909. Designed by borough architect Richard Collins and built by Henry Knight Builders of Tottenham, the £4,000 cost was donated by Andrew Carnegie. An enlarged lending library was added at the rear of the building in 1938

The building is not on the Historic National Heritage List for England but it is on the Local Heritage List for Enfield. For information on what this means and the implications, please click here.

Library services in Enfield Highway were moved the Business Centre, across the road from the original library, at the end of 2017.

We are providing you with an opportunity to tell us how you think the building, where the Library was based, can be used for the benefit of the local community in the future.
