Bank Holidays : LIBRARY CLOSED

Welcome to Keats Community Library

Best wishes for the season and our hopes for 2022 being better  from the Library team!

Sadly, we have decided to close over the holiday in order to reduce the risk of spreading that virus. It is a quiet time anyway.

Please stock up with books on the 21st and 22nd December.

If you have a book due back in that period, please hold onto it until January - fines wil be waived for that period.

  • All public computers will now be available as before.
  • Study tables can be used with up to 2 per table.
  • Newspapers and magazines are not supplied partly for hygene considerations

Until further notice, we are still requiring MASKS TO BE WORN INSIDE. This is in line with the practice across the Keats House Estate and makes our older patrons more comfortable.

We need (nearly all!) your donations  - please click HERE to read the guidelines for book donations.

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


A  delightful, funny new book about Hampstead by Neil Titley describes detailed street by street rambles, lots of history and features the story of the beloved Magdala Pub which reopens in April.

If you like Hampstead, you will love this book!

Available for purchase in limited numbers through the library.  Neil  is donating all profits to the Library.
