We need your help

As well as this main Camden website, we use our sister site Love Camden to tell people about our library events and activities.  We are working on upgrading the Love Camden website and we need you to help us understand if and why you choose to visit our the site and what you like about it.

If you'd like to help, please fill in our survey here.  It will only take three minutes of your time.

Thank you!

Our library books want to come back to the library!

Some of our books have been in your homes for over a year and they are getting homesick. Please return our library books to any of our Camden Libraries (except Camden Town Library) between 1st July and 31st August 2021.  All existing fines on any books you bring back then will be waived.

From 1st September 2021, fines on overdue books will be re-introduced, with the usual three-week loan period.

All our Libraries are now open Monday – Thursday 11am – 6pm and Friday and Saturday 11am – 3.30pm, except for Highgate library and Camden Town Library, click here for all library opening times. Come along and spend up to 20 minutes browsing in the library, choose some new titles, or just return the books that have overstayed their welcome in your home.   

So why wait, get those books back to us now and they can bring enjoyment to someone new.
