New look Southwark Libraries catalogue

The new look Southwark Libraries catalogue is on its way. The brand new online library system will be live from 5 February and you will need an email to access it.

Temporary password

Southwark Libraries 400x400

Library members will receive a new temporary password by email just before the launch, which will allow them to make the most of new features, including reminder emails when books are due for return or renewal. Please make sure you keep your email address up to date with the library to benefit from the new services. Visit your local Southwark library to update your details if you haven’t done so for long time.
