About the library

In response to the coronavirus crisis Swiss Cottage Library is closed until further notice.

Following the most recent guidance from central government, we are working on plans to make sure Camden’s libraries can be opened safely. This will include a phased approach to reopening, with limited computer access available at two libraries first. This approach will be followed in the remaining venues over the summer period.
