Camberwell Library is ‘Library of the Year’ at British Book Awards

Camberwell Library has scooped The Bookseller’s Library of the Year award at the British Book Awards.

The British Book Awards (AKA the Nibbies) is the definitive event for honouring publishers, authors and bookshops, and has replaced the British Book Industry Awards.

At the ceremony on May 9, Camberwell Library was recognised for its achievement in lending twice as many books in 2016-17, compared with before its big refurbishment.

It was also praised for using imaginative promotions, including ‘Choose a Book for Camberwell Library’.

Categories for all types of booksellers and publishers were included, which saw Book Retailer of the Year going to Waterstones and J K Rowling being awarded The BA Award for Outstanding Contribution to the Book Trade.

Councillor Johnson Situ, Southwark Council’s cabinet member for culture and social regeneration, said: “Libraries and small businesses are really important to Southwark’s communities so I am delighted that Camberwell has received this award.”
