Library opening times

In response to the current public health crisis, we have closed all Camden libraries until further notice.

We will continue to review government advice and will update residents if further changes need to be made.


Loans, reservations and charges

Loans and charges

During this period, we have made the following changes to library loans:

  • Loans - all items on loan are now due back on 31st Aug 2020.
  • Charges - all overdue charges will be waived.


We regret that during this time customers cannot reserve any items from:

  • any Camden library
  • the SELMS group of libraries
  • other inter-library loans.

Our apologies for any inconvenience caused.
