The Library at Willesden Green 95 High Road Willesden Green

The museum is highly interactive, with specially commissioned videos and recordings by local people telling stories about their lives in Brent. We also have a temporary exhibition gallery with changing exhibitions linked to Brent and its diverse community. The archives holds collections related to the London Borough of Brent and its residents. We hold the records of Brent Council and its predecessors, including council minutes and building plans, as well as historical maps and street directories, electoral registers, school records, and an extensive collection of old photographs and postcards. We also collect the records of local groups and organisations. Our local history collections include a large reference collection, and local newspapers dating back to 1870.
