Location and opening hours, information on joining, and events that are happening.

Please note: Essential maintenance at Leyton Library from Friday 1 April.
Leyton Library will be undergoing essential maintenance from Friday 1 April to Monday 6 June. The ground floor will still be open as normal for parking permits, customer services, PC usage and Wifi, but unfortunately, the reading room upstairs, the books, events and the lighthouse will all be unavailable.

If Leyton Library is where you normally get books and go for events, your closest libraries for these services are Lea Bridge and Leytonstone libraries. If you would like books home delivered or you would like to click and collect from another library, please use the links on this page to utilise these services.

We apologise for any inconvenience this causes and hope to see you back at our events and reading room once the works are complete.
