There are fourteen libraries in Bromley borough. Whatever your reason for visiting a Bromley library - leisure, information, learning, a place to study or just reading for pleasure - you can open up a world of knowledge and entertainment. Bromley Libraries website enables you to renew and request books and DVDs, find out about library events and read book reviews at the click of a mouse. You can join the library online or in your local library for free.
The checkout limit for eBooks and audiobooks has been increased to FIVE items and the loan period has been extended to 21 days.
Social enterprise leisure and libraries operator GLL have now started to manage the Council’s library service, with all libraries continuing to operate as normal, with facilities and opening hours remaining the same in all 14 libraries. The news follows the award of a 10 year contract to GLL (Greenwich Leisure Limited) which will generate savings for the Council thereby helping protect the library service and other frontline services.
Bromley Libraries are leaving the London Libraries Consortium in January 2018. This means that from 1st September 2017 you will no longer be able to reserve items from other consortium members and from 1st October 2017 you will no longer be able to borrow or renew items from other consortium members.
If you currently have any non-Bromley items on loan or have a non-Bromley library card, please speak to a member of staff for advice.
