Forest Hill Community Library has partially re-opened for a ‘click and collect’ book service. Sadly they are not able to fully reopen the library due to Covid-19, but we are pleased that volunteers are running the ‘click and collect’ book service three days a week:

  • Tuesday, 10am – 2pm
  • Thursday, 3pm – 7pm
  • Saturday, 10am – 12pm
  • As well as reserving books you can drop-in to the library during opening hours and pick up a “lucky dip”, which will be three books chosen according to genre, age or subject. If you need help with ‘click and collect’ you can also call Forest Hill Library when it is open on 020 8244 0634.
