Kentish Town library is open for customers to browse and choose their own books, visit the children's library, and use our public computers and our study spaces.

You don’t need to book a computer in advance, PCs are allocated on a first come, first served basis. Access is limited to four hours per day. You can also scan, print and photocopy documents.

You can return any outstanding books, DVDs or CDs on loan within the opening hours, or after hours through our book drop box. 

We also offer a range of activities for our library users, see: What's on this month.

The library has a number of measures in place to keep customers and staff safe.
