social support barbican library

Whether you like a quiet, peaceful space alone with a good book, or are looking for something fairly specialist, like our amazing music library.

We have something for everyone – with a dedicated children’s library to help little ones get lost in a world of words or graphic novels, there are friendly reading groups and audio books. Our staff are experts and can point you in the right direction and you can even benefit from a home delivery service if you need a little extra help.

Some services are free, some costs vary on activity. Come visit us at Barbican Library, Barbican Centre, EC2Y 8DS

We are open on Monday – Wednesday, 9.30am to 5:30pm, Tuesday and Thursday, 9.30am to 7.30pm, Friday, 9.30am to 4pm and Saturday from 9.30am to 4pm.
