Shepherds Bush LibraryIn the shadow of the Westfield Shopping Centre, the £2 million Shepherds Bush Library easily competes with the sharp architectural lines and bright lights of the modern shopping mall. Stuffy, dusty and old are not words that spring to mind when you see this state of the art library. One of the most exciting and innovative libraries in the country, it has been fitted out with the latest high tech gadgets with self-service terminals, an XBox 360, more than 1000 new DVDs, 600 CDs as well as 25 computers for public use. The library also has over 10,000 brand new fiction and non-fiction books and a children's area with free internet access, homework collection and under-5s session every Tuesday morning (get your ticket from the library). The building was officially opened by Jeremy Paxman on Monday 14th September 2009.
