Library closure

We regret to announce that in line with Government guidelines we will be closing the library during the newly introduced lockdown. Unless the new lockdown is extended we will aim to re-open the library on Friday 4th December 2020.

During this period we will not impose fines on any books which may be returned late. If you are able to return your books, please use the book drop to the left of the front door.

During this period, if there are any books you would particularly like to take out, please email (preferred option) [email protected] to give us details of the books of which you are interested in. If they are available we will contact you to arrange for you to come in and collect them.

For those without internet access please call the library number 020 7419 6599 and leave a voicemail.

For both of the above options please include your contact details and if possible please add your library membership number. 

There are a variety of books at the front of the library in crates. These are a mix of old books from the library and donated books from locals. Please feel free to take a book from the crates with no obligation to return it.  You may if you wish donate some of your own books to the collection.

Thank you for your continued support
