CLPE Literacy Library

Venue, Room and Parking Hire

Our beautiful Literacy Library sits at the heart of our building in London, near Waterloo station. It is a permanent home for our 23,000 children’s books and also a space which can be used not just by the thousands of teachers who work with us at CLPE but also by other charities and organisations who currently don’t have access to an event, library or a training space.

We have lovely, fully equipped training rooms, meeting rooms and a cafe which is covered in drawings by illustrators, poets and authors. 

Would you like to hold your meeting or event in our building?

If you do so, not only will you have a wonderful and inspiring event you will also be supporting our work to help all children become confident, happy and enthusiastic readers and writers, with all the benefits this brings.  

We can accommodate groups of varying sizes in a number of spaces and can offer whole day, half day or evening rentals.
