Idea Store Canary WharfIdea Store Canary Wharf - Tower Hamlet's fourth Idea Store - opened on Thursday 16th March 2006. Courses at the store are offered in partnership between Tower Hamlets Council, London Metropolitan University and Tower Hamlets College. There are three further Idea Stores in the borough: the original store at Bow, one at Chrisp Street and the flagship centre at Whitechapel. These Idea Stores go beyond the typical library services and, in addition to loaning out thousands of books, they also provide a major leisure and learning facility for the area.
