It costs £5 deposit to join the library and become a borrower. You can then borrow materials for a month.
It is free for reference, browsing and computer use
This online catalogue is a work in progress. We have now cataloged all the books in the library and we're working on the journals and zines. Also check out our home page and our catalogue at LibraryThing.
