Belsize Community Library
Belsize Community Library is open on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10am to 6pm. We run activities for 0 to 5 year olds such as Rhyme Times and holiday sessions, and provide a book-lending service and internet access.
We hold English Rhyme Time at 11am every Tuesday, Spanish Rhyme Time at 4pm every Tuesday, and French Rhyme Time at 11am every Wednesday.
Please consider volunteering your time or coming along to one of our activities, or join our fundraising campaign to support the library.
Membership and Lending Information
To borrow books and other resources or use the computers, you will need to become a Belsize Community Library Member. To do this please complete and return the Member Application Form, which can be downloaded here, and bring a proof of address into the library. When you have your Member Number you will be able to access the Belsize Community Library catalogue, reserve and renew items, which you can do online here.
As we are an independent community library, Camden Library cards cannot be accepted. Camden Library cards only work in libraries connected to Camden’s network. The nearest Camden network libraries are Swiss Cottage Library and Queen’s Crescent Library.
