A new card has been launched which will give book lovers the chance to use libraries across west London.
Residents living in Hammersmith and Fulham, Westminster and Kensington and Chelsea can use the One Library Card to access more than one million books at 21 libraries across the three boroughs.
It will also allow residents the opportunity to borrow DVD, CDs and games and use any of the 470 computers available for public use in libraries across the boroughs.
They can also attend any library events for babies and children, reading groups and access specialist collections such as the fashion section at Chelsea Library and the music collection at Victoria Library.
Westminster City Council leader councillor Philippa Roe says: “The One Library Card effectively unlocks one million books, as well as access to specialist book groups and collections, for people who live, work or study in our three boroughs.”
There are 11 libraries in Westminster, six in Kensington and Chelsea and four in Hammersmith and Fulham. Users will have to fill out a registration form to be eligible for the scheme.
“What a fantastic opportunity for literacy lovers in Fulham,” says Sarah Burgess, manager at the Fulham branch of lettings agent Bushells. “Fulham is popular with young families and having access to local libraries and the services they offer are really important to people with children so this is a much welcomed move.”
