Bank Holidays : LIBRARY CLOSED

Welcome to Keats Community Library

12th April 2012 was the day we opened as Keats Community Library - our 10th year beckons.

The library owes its thriving existance to the those who have given their time  (many of our orignal volunteers are still working ) books and money; local businesses and sponsors; Hampstead Summer Festival ; all the many speakers, actors and performers who have given generously of their time for our events  THANK YOU ALL.


The library is now back to operating pretty much as normal; if you have not been for  a while do come back.

We never ceased acquiring new books and these are on display by the entrance. You have to be quick as our regulars snap them up!


Although not a legal requirement, we are still suggesting MASKS TO BE WORN INSIDE. This makes our older patrons more comfortable.

Donating books or DVDs: please click HERE to read the guidelines for book donations. Next GIANT book sale is Autumn 2022.  

Our income depended on events and donations. As with so many charities and business, income fell off the cliff after March 2020. While expenses are now at previous levels, income has not yet recovered.

If you can spare help, please do not forget us.  People donate monthly from £2.50 to £100 and ad hoc all of which really helps us.


General Conditions for Library use and applicable charges are posted in the Library at the Librarians's desk. A copy is available CLICK HERE



Join us for 45 minutes of singing and movement for young children (0 to 4 years old) and their parents/carers.

Normally on Tuesday and Friday at 11am

NOTE: Booking required: Please go to www.wegottickets.com and search for "Rhyme Time" .
