Herts Public Libraries





Hertfordshire Libraries

We are so lucky to have a fantastic public library on our doorstep. We work very closely with North Watford library and publicise their fun reading, creative and other events.


The librarians also come into school each summer term to tell us all about the Summer Reading Challenge.


So if you're not already a member, why not pop along and join? It's free to join - parents/carers just take along ID and proof of address (like a council tax bill, for example) and complete a simple form. For more information about Herts Libraries, click here.



All library buildings and most services are currently closed until further notice due to Coronavirus.


In the meantime, if you're a member, you can access many of their services and resources online - ebooks, audiobooks, digital magazines and newspapers and online reference resources. They are also now offering a Ready Reads service - click here for more information and to order and borrow books.


Not a member of Herts Libraries? You can sign up today here.

Access the above online services immediately using the temporary member number provided on sign up, until they are able to issue you with a permanent library card once libraries re-open.
