About your library

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

You don’t need to book a computer in advance, PCs are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Access is limited to two 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. 

The library has a number of other measures in place to keep customers and staff safe.  For details, see: Keeping everyone safe.

Because of the current situation, our services may change at short notice.  For the latest information, see: Changes to library service.
