What’s on in Hackney libraries

Our libraries are free to visit and open to everyone all year round. You can use them to:
  • read books
  • charge your phone
  • access free wifi
  • browse the internet

All our libraries have quiet spaces for studying and most are open until 8pm. We also run free storytelling, writing, digital skills and craft sessions.
