Our social media
We want you to feel part of our library community! Sign up to our Facebook page, Twitter stream and Instagram account to be kept informed of events and activities for children and adults throughout the borough's libraries, including special holiday events and adult celebrations of reading, learning and literature. We also have a blog too.
Within these sites we hope to intrigue and entertain you with tales of action and adventure, of history and exciting things to come. Like all great stories there will be suspense, mystery, perhaps a little romance and, with your help, plenty of plot development as your comments, posts and tweets inform our tale.
So if you want to know why we're "more than a library", join us in the story of your libraries. Find us online and discover more about the services we offer and the activities, history and features of Hammersmith & Fulham's libraries.
