Welcome to Keats Community Library
Keats Community Library ("KCL") is a volunteer-run registered charity at 10 Keats Grove, London NW3. KCL has been operated by the community after taking over the former Heath Library from Camden Council in March 2012
We depend entirely on our community for volunteers and funding. We welcome volunteers to join the terrific team in the library - just ask in the library or email us.
If you want to help in any way, or have ideas to improve our services, please see our "Join Us" section.
Visiting the library is free and open to everyone. To borrow books, DVDs and talking/audio books you need to register as we are not part of Camden's Library network.
- Over 20,000 items to borrow - adult & childen's books + large print + talking books. We add new books weekly. We pride ourselves in adding the latest popular books, often when published.
- 6 public PCs + Printing and copying in Black & White and Colour (A3/A4) - charges may apply
- FREE WiFi across the library + quiet study tables open to all
Large DVD Library : FREE in 2018 for 7 days ( with many thanks to U3A in London for supporting this)
- An active and varied events programme based on Literacy and the Arts generally. Advance details are mailed to card holders and are also shown on this website
- Educational sessions for children on Art, Creative Writing, chess as well as Rythme Time and Story time readings
Opportunities for social service qualifications such as Duke of Edinburgh candidates.
