Welcome Welcome

Here you can browse the books that are available across the London Libraries Consortium, reserve that book that you really must read, check on your account information, renew your books and lots more.  

Our range of encylopedias and information resources can be found under the information tab at the top of the page and we have a great collection of online courses that are available free of charge ... driving theory, citizenship, a new language or some dog grooming, there is something there for every need (or whim!)

If you'd prefer to Get Online in one of our libraries, then reserve a PC in advance to avoid those queues.

And don't forget to check out all the events and activities happening in a library, museum, gallery or pop-up location near you.  We have Something for everyone and all events in libraries are free.

We'll be continuing to improve your catalogue and website over the next six months so please do let us know what you think and we'd love to hear suggestions on how we could make it better.

 

Historic images of Waltham Forest go online Historic images of Waltham Forest go online

Vestry House Museum's photo archive has been made available online for the first time. The archive goes back to the 1840s, with over 500 images of the borough's streets and buildings - including landmark churches, shops and pubs - as well as portraits of local personalities and community celebrations. The images can be searched by date, area or theme.

 

All the photos are also available to order as high quality prints, with proceeds from sales being used to support the Museum's programme of exhibitions, events and educational projects. To view the archive visit http://boroughphotos.org/walthamforest.

We are "Soundwave" the Waltham Forest Talking Newspaper.  On a weekly basis we read the news from the Waltham Forest Guardian on to memory sticks for the visually impaired within the borough.  As a small local charity we provide this service totally free of charge and we will even loan you a player if you do not have access to a computer to enable you to play the memory stick.

If you are interested and would like more details then please leave your telephone number on 07811 245695 and we will contact you as soon as we are able.
