Library bookshelves


It’s been a while since we last saw our customers there in person but New Barnet Library is finally reopening, with the New Barnet Leisure Centre, on the week beginning April 12th.


We’ll be starting with the Select and Collect services we’ve been running for the last year, whereby people can reserve books, DVDs and CDs from any Barnet Library branch and have them sent to New Barnet for collection.  This can be done online at or by calling the library on 0208 359 3868 during our opening times. We’ll contact you when your bag is ready to save a wasted journey.

From the week beginning April 26th, we’ll also be offering 45 minute slots for pre-booked IT usage, between the hours of Tuesday 2-5pm and Friday 10am-1pm. These sessions can be booked either in person or by telephone.

If you have any further questions, or if you’re interested in volunteering at either New Barnet or South Friern Library, please email our friendly neighbourhood Inclusion Barnet library manager Nick at
