Branches - Merton

Library branches

Merton has seven libraries for people who live work, study or visit the borough. Find out more about library opening times, locations, contact details and the range of services available at each of Merton's Libraries.

In  recent years we have increased opening hours in all Merton’s libraries. This has been greatly assisted with the use of self service technology and the support of our volunteers. To meet ongoing financial challenges, from Tuesday 2 May 2017 our four branch libraries will have a reduced staffing presence at off peak times with a predominately self serve offer at these times. There will be a fully staffed service available in branch libraries at peak times from 10am to 12pm and 2pm to 5pm from Monday to Friday and from 11 am to 4pm on Saturdays in branch libraries.

Food Waste Bags

Merton Waste Services are no longer supplying food waste liners to libraries. We have been informed that customers may use newspaper instead of compostable liners to line their caddy. The newspaper  lining will be collect along with the food waste. If required, compostable food waste liners are available from supermarkets and shops. If you currently have a fully vented food waste caddy, you can request a solid washable model and receive more information about the recent food recycling changes by calling 020 8274 4902 or visiting
