Library Locations Are Cooling Centres

Did you know that our library locations act as official cooling and warming centres during times of extreme weather in London?  All Londoners are welcome to cool off in our neighbourhood library locations during our regular hours of operation. If you know of someone who needs a cool place to spend time (many of our locations are open from 9am-9pm), please remind them that their Library would welcome a visit.  For a list of other cooling centres and related information, particularly for our most vulnerable, visit the City of London's website.

Regular hours have resumed at Central Library and a temporary 2nd floor entrance is available

Regular hours and operations have resumed at Central Library as of Monday, June 27. 

A temporary entrance to the Library's 2nd floor is now available.  You can access this entrance from the 2nd floor of Citi Plaza, north side. Please note that this entrance will close 15 minutes before the Library closes.  The hours of operation for the 2nd floor entrance are: Monday-Thursday 9 am - 8:45 pm; Friday 9 am - 5:45 pm; and Saturday 9 am - 4:45 pm.  You can check out and return materials and validate your parking on the 2nd floor as well as reaching the Library's 1st and 3rd floors via elevator.  Elevator access to all floors remains available from all 3 floors. 

We thank you for making great use of our temporary Pop Up Central location and our branches while we were closed for heavy construction.
