There is more to a Redbridge library than just books

Redbridge libraries form an integral part of the community and we are fortunate to have a number of libraries throughout the borough, many of which are open five days a week including Saturdays and evenings.

It is not just a place to go and borrow books. Most of the libraries offerreading groups, access to computers and free internet usage, community activities and events, knit and natter sessions, eBooks and eAudio books rental as well asa coffee shop at Central Library.
