About your library

Highgate library is open for users to collect books ordered through our Request and Read service. 

From Thursday 4th March, the Library will also be open for users to use the computers, and for printing and photocopying.

You don’t need to book a place, computers are allocated on a first come, first served basis. Access is limited to one hour per day.

You can also scan, print and photocopy documents.

While you cannot come in to our libraries to choose your own books, you can order books from the library using Request and Read service.

To find out more and to order a book, go to: Request and Read.

The library has a number of 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.
