In line with government guidelines we are open 9.30am-3.30pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout the lockdown. These hours are for you to return or request a book, use a computer, and carry out printing and photocopying. Alternatively you can call ahead on 020 8301 1433 to request your choice of book or to reserve a computer slot.

If you would prefer we are also offering a delivery service for books or even prescription pickups. Give us a call to discuss how we can help you during this time. We have lots of willing volunteers, even if you need some shopping!

Unfortunately at this time we are unable to allow people to browse books or stay to work in the library. Our Rooted Coffee House is also currently closed.

Some of our groups are able to continue, so check out our social media for updates:
