Local libraries may offer more than you expect. As well as books and magazines, libraries lend music, DVDs and computer games. Some have coffee shops and all offer free internet access. We need to use them or we will lose them.


Beavers Library

103 Salisbury Rd, Hounslow TW4 7NW, UK – 020 8583 5547

Small community library, really little more than an annexe to the local children's centre. Internet available, staff friendly and efficient, which makes a change from the minimal staffing and self service kiosks now prevalent in the borough's other libraries. Small number of books on the stacks, but linked to the wider Hounslow Borough library system, so any book at any branch can be reserved for collection.

Hounslow Library

Hounslow Library Civic Centre, Lampton Rd, Hounslow TW3 4DN, UK – 020 8583 5558

Absolutely nice place....lots of book..one need time to go through the precious books. Full of knowldge source, my son take me everyday here to read the books in Kid section. Staff is kind to guide on everything. Nice calm.place..u might feel sleepy because of that! I love this place.

The library is in a temporary home in the Civic Centre's erstwhile conference centre until the summer of 2018 when it will move to the new purpose built council complex. Regarding reviews by other users, all the local libraries have to serve the needs of multiple user groups, students wishing to study, people wanting to read the newspapers, and children and toddlers, and compromises are to be expected especially as this is a temporary location, and the cafeteria in question operates only at lunch times. That said the library is now in a quiet location off of the main High Street, and for me at least a better location than the previous Treaty Centre one.

Osterley Library

11 St Mary's Cres, Isleworth TW7 4NB, UK – 020 8583 5566

It is a great place for children's literature. Lovely staff, too.

Wonderful space for young families to enjoy some books. Possibly it can even be considered cool as it was full of teenagers studyin together.
