Library services review


We have been consulting residents on changes to the library service. We want to make it easier for people across the borough to enjoy books, access the internet and find community activities.

The consultation period has now closed and a report is being prepared for Cabinet in the coming months. To read more about the proposals click here


Self-service opening


We are now operating self-service opening hours at Selsdon and Norbury libraries using Open+ technology to enable library members to borrow books and access facilities outside the usual opening hours.


Usual services are available during self-service hours - members can borrow, renew and return items, collect reservations, and use a computer or WiFi to access the internet, eBooks or other online resources. Security measures are in place and CCTV is in operation for the safety of visitors. 


Self-service opening is available to all adults aged 18 and over and young people from 16 years old can register with parental consent. Children under 16 must be accompanied by a registered parent or guardian during self-service hours.

You will need to register at either library in order to use the service. Click here for operating times and further details
