Idea Store WhitechapelMore than a library, the Idea Store in Whitechapel brings together adult learning, training and meeting areas, as well as a focus on the local history of Tower Hamlets. Housed in a David Adjaye designed building, Idea Store Whitechapel opened in September 2005 and includes the former Whitechapel library, once home to the biggest collection of
Yiddish books in Europe. The £20 million Idea Stores project, first begun in April 1999, encompasses Idea
Store centres at Bow, Chrisp Street (opened
July 2004), and Idea Store
Canary Wharf which launched in March 2006.
