Reserving items

Because of the new lockdown restrictions, we regret that customers cannot reserve items from any Camden library, or from the SELMS group of libraries or to request other inter-library loans.  We hope to be able to restore the Reservation service soon.For more information about the library service during this period, see the pages on changes to the Library service because of Coronavirus.

Customers can request books from four of our libraries via our Request and Read service.  For more information see Request and Read.

You can also login to your library account.
