We have a wide range of library online services that you can explore - eBooks, audiobooks, newspapers, research tools and other online resources.

Ready Reads is a new way to borrow books from Haringey libraries. Simply let us know what you like to read, and we’ll choose a selection of books for you. You won’t be able to request specific authors or titles, but we’ll do our best to find books you’ll enjoy. There are six books in each pack and only one pack is available per library card. We will contact you when they are ready to collect. There are two ways to order your pack:
- by phone - ring us on 020 8489 2700, Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm
- via the dedicated Ready Reads online form.
Order and collect
You can come to one of our libraries and collect specific titles that have been pre-ordered by phone on 020 8489 2700. You can call Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.
Grab and Go
Choose your own books at the library and go. We are sorry, but at this time there is no option to sit or stay in the library.
Users can return books in a designed ‘Drop Box’ situated just inside the library.
You can now use computer stations available at our libraries, but you need to book first.
There are two ways to book:
- at the library
- by phone on 020 8489 2700. You can call Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.
We will provide further updates on the availability of more library services in due course.
