Swiss Cottage Library
Following the ‘Camden Future Libraries’ consultation in 2015 the Swiss Cottage library and art gallery will no longer be open on Sundays from the 4th September 2016.
A full range of Sunday library services will be available in Camden at:
Pancras Square Library

The Council is also investing in new technology in our libraries to support customers to access more self-service facilities such as printing and computer bookings.
