Changes to libraries service due to coronavirus

Libraries across H&F will be closed throughout January 2021 due to concerns about the spread of Covid-19.

We will review when it will be safe to re-open for staff and visitors. Please watch this space.

Our 'Out of Hours' return boxes will still operate when we are closed and items are being renewed automatically for the time being.

Shepherds Bush Library - Covid-19 testing centre

Shepherds Bush Library at Westfield London is currently being used as a Covid-19 testing centre until 10 February. If you'd like to book a rapid Covid-19 test click here.

Home library service

The home library delivery driver will deliver your items to your door wearing personal protective equipment and maintaining social distancing at all times for the safety of our customers and staff.

If you can't get to your local library because of illness, disability, frailty or caring responsibilities and are not already using this service, why not send us an email to the address below to see if you qualify.
