There are ten libraries across Newham, each offering a range of services and community activities. As well as a fantastic selection of books and other reading material of course.
Many of our libraries have a busy schedule of regular activities to suit all ages and tastes, from parent and toddler sessions, reading groups and chess to knitting, over 50s club and gentle exercise.
