Hive House Library

We plan to re-open Hive House Library in the coming few months. Find out provisional dates, subject to the government’s roadmap being achieved.

Meanwhile, you can choose from thousands of free eBooks and see what's available via the Libby app. Not a member of the library yet? Join online.

We regret all of our library events and activities remain suspended until further notice.

Any items on loan before lock-down have been extended until 31 May 2021. There are no fines when the library is closed.
