We regret that because of the new government restrictions we have had to make further changes to the service in our libraries.

For full details, see Changes to the library service

You can continue to visit our digital library which has a range of free online books and information resources. 

Keeping everyone safe

Libraries will have a number of measures in place to keep residents and staff safe. These include:

  • Voluntary contact tracing is in place
  • Computers spaced to allow social distancing
  • Regular cleaning between users
  • It is mandatory for library users to wear face coverings
  • Family PC use limited to one adult and one child only
  • Customers are limited to one session of up to one hour per day


Leisure centres

In line with the most recent lockdown guidance, Camden’s leisure centres are temporarily closed until further notice.

Better Leisure will contact members with more information on memberships and payments.

Better Leisure will automatically apply a payment pause on your account and will not take any further payment from you during the period they are closed.

Using parks and open spaces safely

It’s important that we all enjoy Camden’s parks and open spaces safely. Please help up to keep these spaces clean and safe for everyone:

-    Keep a 2m distance where possible
-    Wash your hands regularly and as soon as you get home
-    Take litter home with you where bins are full or not provided
-    Do not BBQ in Camden’s parks

If you are showing coronavirus symptoms, or if you or any of your household are self-isolating, you should stay at home - this is critical to staying safe and saving lives.

Tennis courts and Multi-Use Games Areas

Tennis bookings are now open here. You can find advice to help you stay Covid safe whilst playing tennis here

Playgrounds and outdoor gyms

If you are using playgrounds or outdoor gyms please keep yourself and others safe by:

-    Keeping a 2m distance where possible
-    Washing hands and using sanitiser regularly
-    Use face coverings where possible
-    If areas are busy please come back later
-    Do not eat or drink in playgrounds and outdoor gyms
-    Please bring your own hygiene products and wipe down equipment after use
-    Do not use these spaces if you or anyone from your household has coronavirus symptoms
