Kilburn Library

Kilburn Library is­­­­­­­ open for browsing, the collection of reserved items and to return books. You can reserve items through the online catalogue or by using our Click and Collect service.

Opening hours are Monday to Saturday, 10.30am to 4pm and Sunday, 12pm to 4pm.

At present no other services such as PCs are available and other library sites remain closed.

Limited numbers of people are allowed in the library at a time. Social distancing measures will be in place and you must only visit with members of your household.

You will be required to complete NHS Track and Trace, which is essential for the safety of all visitors and staff. By completing it, you’re helping us to reduce the spread of Covid-19 and save lives. This is mandatory and you may be asked to leave if you refuse to fill it in.

You will also need to wear a face covering unless exempt.
