As of the time of writing (March 21st) all Lambeth’s ten libraries are closed. This is in line with government recommendations on social distancing to counter the spread of COVID-19 and answers concern at the clear danger to both the general public and library staff from the maintenance of the onsite service.
Our precious libraries are just one of the many casualties of the current coronavirus epidemic, whose impact continues to rise. So there is little prospect of an early resumption of core services to the general public. The numerous events and activities at the library (listed in the side panel), suspended earlier in the week, will remain dormant.
But we have not been cut off from some valuable resources that Lambeth libraries offer their members.
If you’re a member of the library- stuck at home, self isolating or just trying to maintain social distance -Lambeth library service offers you a wide variety of online resources that you can access in your home.

All you need is the number on your library membership card.
