Second Air Division Memorial Library

Other location

Detailed history

The Memorial Library is a unique ‘living memorial’ to nearly 7,000 young Americans in the 2nd Air Division of the US 8th Air Force who lost their lives during the Second World War. Located in the landmark Forum building in the centre of Norwich, England, we have a lending collection of over 4,000 books covering all aspects of American life and culture, and a specialist collection devoted to the history of the 2nd Air Division and US 8th Air Force.

The Memorial Library archive, on deposit with the Norfolk Record Office, includes personal papers, diaries, photographs and other material relating to the 2nd Air Division USAAF servicemen who were based in Norfolk and Suffolk during the Second World War. Much of this material is available online in our digital archive: www.2ndair.org.uk/digitalarchive

We hold the 2nd Air Division Roll of Honor, which you can browse online: www.2ndair.org.uk/Library_resources/Roll_of_Honor

Please come and visit us in the Norfolk and Norwich Millennium Library at the Forum, Norwich, NR2 1AW. We are open 10am to 5pm Monday to Friday, and 10am to 5pm on Saturdays. For more information about the library visit our website: www.2ndair.org.uk
