Opening hours

Following the advice from the Government on dealing with the spread of Coronavirus, Cavendish, Harrow and Marylebone libraries are open for access to a limited number of study spaces which must be booked in advance.

We are offering a book collection service by appointment from Cavendish, Harrow and Marylebone libraries but books can be requested from any site.

During this time staff are not available to help in-person but they are available throughout the day via Live Chat (9am-6pm Monday-Thursday, 9am-5pm on Fridays and 11am-5pm on weekends).

Our online library is open and is full of resources to help you with your studies.

If you can’t study effectively from home, you can now book a seat in one of our socially distanced study spaces at Harrow, Marylebone and Cavendish libraries. Find out more about how to book a space.

Any library books you have out now will be auto-renewed so you do not need to come in to return them.

We will continue to update you as and when more information becomes available. Please visit our Guide to Library Services during COVID-19 for up-to-date guidance and FAQs.
