We are pleased to announce that the library will re-open on Monday April 12th.  Opening hours will be as normal.

Monday                      10.00 -18.00

Wednesday               12.00 -19.00

Friday                         10.00 -18.00

Saturday                    10.00 -15.00

We apologise but services will be limited to book returns and new book loans along with photocopying and scanning.  Sorry but we will not be offering any other services at this stage.

Library members will still be required to use hand sanitizer on entry and wear a face covering.  This is likely to remain the case until all restrictions have been removed.


As the Government has announced a 3rd National Lockdown the Library will unfortunately have to remain closed.  We anticipate remaining closed until the Government lowers London to Tier 3 restrictions.
Updates on our reopening will be announced once the Government provides further guidance.


We will not charge any fines on late returned books during this period.  If you are able to return your books please use the book drop to the left of the front door


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

Thank you for your continued support.

Your Library Team

It is with regret that we have to announce that we will be closing once again as the Government has placed all London Boroughs into Tier 3 restrictions as of 00.01 on Wednesday 16thDecember 2020.  Our intention had been to re-open on Monday 4th January 2021 following the Christmas and New Year holidays.  Unfortunately in all likelihood we will remain closed until such time as the Government lowers London back to Tier 2 level restrictions.  Updates on our re-opening will be announced once the Government has provided further guidance.   


During the Pandemic we have left some crates at the front entrance containing a variety of books.  These are a mixture of our old books and ones donated by members of the public.  Please feel free to take one or more books from the selection available with no obligation to return them.  You may if you wish donate some books to those available.

We apologise for any inconvenience and once again thank you for your continued support.

Stay safe

Update On Library

6 July 2020

Dear Members,

It has been a while since you received anything from us, because, during lock-down, we didn’t have a lot to say.  I hope you and yours have all come through it unscathed and are keeping well and safe.

And now that the country is starting to open up again, we are waiting for Camden Council to announce when they are going to open their libraries again so we can follow suit. In view of this, we have been thinking about how best to do this, while keeping everybody safe.

So your library, when it opens, will look a little different and we will start with small steps: Only 2 hours 3 days a week (so 6 in total).  You will only be able to take books out (and bring them back, of course), there will be no seating and no use of computers and no use of loos.

We have been thinking about a click and collect system, but feel that some of our members will be excluded as they may not be able to access the library collection on-line. However, if you are really desperate for a book, give us a ring and we will see what we can do.

As I mentioned, when we open very much depends on when Camden libraries open and how we go on depends very much on how many of our volunteers will be willing and able to come and help, as many of them are elderly and vulnerable.

Based on this, it is unlikely we will open before the end of August/beginning of September, but we will be in touch more, keeping you informed of our plans.

Keep your fingers crossed that we will be able to open our doors soon,

The Library Team

Dear All,

We thought we would give you the latest in these fast-changing times.
As you all know, we closed as a library last Monday at 1 pm.

Will and Terry were still coming in and during the week all the events and courses were cancelled.

This week, Will and Terry have opted for working from home, which, considering the strong government advice, is the right thing to do. So the library is now completely closed for the foreseeable future.

In the meantime, please let us know if you need help with anything and we will help in any way we can.

There are books, or at least there were on Friday afternoon, out in front of the library that you can take.

So for the rest, let’s all do our bit to keep ourselves and others safe and keep a safe distance.

We’ll get in touch again soon.
