What’s On


For the latest info on what is happening at Kennington Library check out the All Posts page as all the latest info and events are posted there. Latest news can be found here.

Covid-19 update

Unfortunately the library is closed again due to the increased Covid-19 restrictions.

Please be reassured that you will not incur any fines for late books as a result of the recent lockdown as all loans have been extended to April 2021. This applies to books taken out since reopening and also to loans taken out pre April 2020 which were due back in November.

We will continue to update this site as and when things change.

Thanks for all your support & hope to see you again soon.
