Our libraries

Welcome to The Library and Archives Service. In response to circumstances surrounding COVID-19 we are operating a reduced service but are broadening access to spaces and physical collections wherever possible.

Our book collections will re-open for browsing and borrowing on 2 August at Cavendish, Harrow and Marylebone libraries.

Library counters at Cavendish, Harrow and Marylebone will re-open 11:00-3:00 from 16 August.

Our chat service continues to operate 9:00-17:00 Monday-Friday and 11:00-17:00 on Saturdays.

Plans for Regent library will be confirmed shortly.

Library users should continue to request items using our book collection service until browsing re-opens on 2 August.

Users who wish to study within the library should book a space.
