Bromley Libraries are leaving the London Libraries Consortium in January 2018. This means that from 1st October 2017 you will only be able to borrow items from Bromley via Inter Library Loans. Please ask a member of staff if this service is available in your library.
To achieve this, none of their stock can be reserved from 1st September 2017 and none of their stock can be borrowed or renewed from 1st October 2017. If you currently have a Bromley item on loan or have a Bromley library card, please speak to a member of staff for advice.
