Welcome to Keats Community Library

The library owes its thriving existance since April 2012 to the those who have given their time (many of our original volunteers are still coming) 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.


Our new and popular books to lend are on display by the entrance to the main library. You have to be quick as our regulars snap them up!

There are also books for SALE in the entrance area.

We really rely on  the wonderful community effort in donating books: We do received some inappropriate material so please click HERE to read the guidelines for book donations. Thank you

Our income depends on events and donations and life is tough now.  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 as do legacies..

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