About the library

Pancras Square library is open for customers to browse and choose their own books, visit the children's library, access our public computers, and use our study spaces.  

You don’t need to book a computer in advance, PCs are allocated on a first come, first served basis. Access is limited to four hours per day. You can also scan, print and photocopy documents. View the Acceptable Use of Public Computers policy (PDF).

You can return any outstanding books, DVDs or CDs on loan within the opening hours. 

We also offer a range of activities for our library users, see: What's on this month. Looking ahead, why not join us between 9 December to 28 December as we transform the library into a fantastical realm with our fantasy exhibition, in partnership with the British Library. Get creative and enter our fantasy poetry and drawing competition. You could win a £25 book token and see your drawing or poem printed on our library bookmarks.

The library has a number of measures in place to keep customers and staff safe.   

Our services may change at short notice.  For the latest information, see Library news.
