About your library

Highgate Library is now open for Quick Choice - for browsing and borrowing books - and for limited Computer access, with reduced opening hours (see below).

Users don’t need to book a place, computers are allocated on a first come, first served basis.  Book browsing time is limited to a maximum 20 minutes.

You may also return any outstanding books, DVDs or CDs on loan within these hours. For quarantine purposes these items won’t be removed from your record for at least 72 hours. 

The library will have a number of measures in place to keep users and staff safe.
