The libraries in the borough of Newham offer a wide selection of services.
If you can't find the book you want, we can get it for you. You can also come to one of our reading groups where you can discover new writers, talk about books and meet new people. We have books for all ages and interests and in community languages as well as English.
You can also borrow a range of audio visual items, such as talking books on cassette or CD, as well as music and films.
There is no charge to borrow books, CDs, CD-ROMs, spoken word, learn English and skills for life materials. However, there is a charge for the loan and renewal of DVDs and a fee for reservations for non-resident customers or those using a library card issued from other authorities.
All libraries have a free internet service.
You can use this site to search the catalogue for all Newham stock available in our libraries and stock that you can borrow from our partner libraries across London.
Some libraries offer meeting rooms and exhibition space for hire.
Newham libraries also provide local information, community information, information on council services and tourist information.
