Hammersmith library

Changes to the library service due to coronavirus

Libraries across H&F will remain 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. Our 'Out of Hours' return boxes will still operate when we are closed.

Shepherds Bush library will be closed until 10 February because it is operating as a Covid-19 testing centre.

Please see the library service update page for information about changes to our library service.
