Lambeth has 10 branches and a home library service. Most of them provide books in Indic, Asian and European languages. Durning branch is a fine Victorian Grade II listed building and runs ESOL classes. The Clapham branch runs a chess club, and the Brixton branch holds the main reference collection. There are sessions for children and under-5s in most branches and Tate South Lambeth runs a teen reading group. The Carnegie branch is a classic example of Carnegie library architecture and was recently saved from closure. Local studies and archives are held at the Minet library.
