Our libraries are joining The Libraries Consortium, which means we’re updating our library membership terms and conditions


Alexandra Park Library will be closed for major refurbishments until early January 2023.

St Ann's Library will be closed for building work until the end of January 2023.

Important changes to our Haringey Libraries terms and conditions

We’re updating our terms and conditions because we joined The Libraries Consortium (TLC) (external link) to enhance our services for the benefit of all residents.

The Haringey Libraries terms and conditions are an agreement between you and Haringey Libraries that governs your use of Haringey Libraries and TLC’s libraries, online products and services.

Joining TLC gives you the benefit of being able to use and borrow from all the group libraries, in 23 local authorities. 

To do this Haringey Libraries must share access to your personal library data with the other local authority libraries, so you can borrow books and access other library services.

There is no change to the level of protection your personal information is given.

All the libraries in the consortium comply with the Data Protection Act (DPA) and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), ensuring that your personal data is kept safe.

Being part of TLC will give you access to over 8 million library books, thousands of eBook titles, audiobooks and 350 public libraries. You will be able to access all TLC libraries with your existing Haringey Library card.

Further information regarding Haringey Libraries joining TLC and the new system implementation can be found on our website.

When do the new Terms and Conditions take effect?

The updates to the Haringey Libraries terms and conditions take effect on 2 December 2022.

You must agree to the changes and accept our terms and conditions before this date if you wish to continue using our libraries after 2 December 2022.

If you do not accept the new terms and conditions, you can choose to discontinue using Haringey Library services, and close your library account before these terms become effective.

If you are a parent or guardian, you are responsible for your child’s or teenager’s use of Haringey Library services and must accept the terms and conditions on their behalf.
