Welcome to Keats Community Library

Keats Community Library ("KCL") is a  volunteer-run registered charity at 10 Keats Grove, London NW3 operated by the community since March 2012. KCL is fully independant after taking over the former Heath Library from Camden Council.

KCL depends 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 ot part of Camden's Library network.

  • Over 20,000 items to borrow - adult & childen's books + large print + talking books - adding new books weekly. We pride ourselves in adding the latest books, often as 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 2017 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.

Our events are often sold out in advance. To hear about them early, please join our free event mailing list; just enter your email address into the box to the left of this page and click "GO" or send us an email with your details.
