Libraries and leisure centres

The borough's six large and more open plan libraries will be open from 6 July, these are: Greenwich Centre, Woolwich, Eltham, Blackheath, New Eltham and West Greenwich. Some furniture will be removed and there will be shorter sessions on PCs, so more people can access them. In all of the libraries a strict cleaning regime will be in place.

The other six smaller libraries are more difficult for people to socially distance, so these are likely to open in early August.

A large range of ebooks and resources from our libraries are available online, and you can join in with Baby Rhyme Time on the libraries Facebook page. The Home Library service is still available for those eligible.

Leisure centres remain closed but we are waiting on guidance from the government on when it will be safe to reopen them again.
