The Hub of the Community..


Northfields Community Library is a registered charity run completely by volunteers who share a passion for reading. We are providing a vibrant and welcoming library for everyone who loves books.


After working hard for over a year to set ourselves up as a charity and to work out how we can offer a safe and enjoyable library following recent events, we are now starting to open the library up to the public. We are hugely excited to be welcoming you back.


We have also been running a whole host of online events since Spring 2020 and you are very welcome to join those. You can find more details in our What’s On guide.


We have opened our doors!..


Northfields Community Library Update 18 July 2021

In view of the current high numbers of Covid infections we have decided that for the safety of our volunteers and customers we will continue with some restrictions for now. We will keep these under review but for the time being we will ask customers to:

  • Use the NHS QR code to register when you come into the library. Don’t worry if you don’t have the app but you will need to give your name and contact details to one of our volunteers (this information is only kept for 21 days)
  • Hands - Use the hand sanitiser on entry
  • Face - Wear a mask (unless you are exempt). Our volunteers will be wearing face masks.
  • Space - Follow the one way system and maintain a social distance of 2 metres from people who are not in your household
  • A maximum number of 15 people are allowed in the Library so please be patient if you have to wait or if we ask you to move on to allow others to come in.
  • We will be offering 45 min bookable slots to use the public computers.
  • At the moment we do not have the space to allow people to sit and study but hope to introduce this in the Autumn.

We update our website regularly so please check here to see what new activities we are introducing.


The Library is run by local volunteers so please respect us, and look after each other, by following our guidance


Thank you and Happy Reading!
