  • Monday 10am to 6pm (reduced by an hour, currently open to 7pm)
  • Tuesday 10am to 6pm (reduced by an hour, currently open to 7pm)

This follows a mass of cuts to library services in Camden. From the council website at www.camden.gov.uk/ccm/navigation/leisure/libraries-and-online-learning-centres/

"From Monday 2 April there will be changes to a number of library services including new opening hours at most Camden libraries. The Council needs to deliver a savings programme of £83m following cuts in government funding, this includes a reduction of £2 million from the libraries budget."

Details on all library services hours changes are available at www.camden.gov.uk/ccm/content/news/2012/february/changes-to-library-services.en
