Brentford Library

The consultation on opening hours for the borough's libraries is due end next Wednesday (3 April).

The council is considering introducing a new timetable that they claim better matches resident demand, and removes current inefficient opening times. 

Under the proposal the total staffed opening hours across all sites will remain unchanged and additional self-service opening hours will be available at Isleworth Leisure Centre.

Brentford, Chiswick and Isleworth library times would not be affected.

Have your say and see the timetables.

Councillor Sue Sampson, Cabinet Member for Leisure Services, Hounslow Council, said: “This consultation gives our residents a chance to say if the new timetable fits with when they typically visit their library. If it doesn’t we want to look at that to match opening hours to where the demand is.

“We asked officers to consider a new timetable that minimises disruption to our existing key users and groups, and this proposal is what they believe fits the best. We look forward to hearing from library users now so we can take steps to refine it further where necessary”

The new timetable would see all eleven branches remain open and it would also allow key services such as Storytime, reading groups, English language club and IT training to continue.
