Waltham Forest Libraries is a member of the London Libraries Consortium (LLC) and you can use your Waltham Forest Library Card not only in any Library in Waltham Forest but in any library within the LLC. This gives our residents access to millions of books across London which can for a small charge, be reserved to arrive at a library near you.
Anybody who lives, works or studies in Waltham Forest is entitled to a FREE Waltham Forest library card (although if you already have an LLC card from a different borough we won't issue another card to you unless you have lost it and pay for a replacement card or you surrender your existing card (note that fines and charges on other LLC cards are still due for payment)).
There is no age limit to a library card and we encourage you to join each member of your family to the library so that they can start enjoying all the free resources on offer; and that includes the Babies, who love looking at books and being read to.
You can borrow up to 15 Books at one time for up to 3 weeks. This can be extended for FREE if you renew the library book before it is due back to the library and provided that nobody else has reserved the book. If we don't have something in the library that you are looking for you can always try our FREE eBook and eAudio service or for a small charge you can place a reservation for a particular title.
