Welwyn Garden City Library in Lockdown


Welwyn Garden City Library have contacted us about this exciting opportunity to be able to access the library and borrow books even during lockdown. We are sure both the children and yourselves would welcome enjoying a good book and escape if only for a few precious minutes during these unprecedented times.


Welwyn Garden City Library offers a Ready Reads service. You simply order books for your child and yourselves using an online form and then collect from a selected library. The books are collected at the library entrance and all you need to provide is your own bag. Staff will remain socially distant and will be wearing face coverings during the collection process. 


If you are interested in finding out more information simply use the link below: 


If children do not already have library membership this can be done online very easily by visiting their website.  


The library will supply age-appropriate reading books rather than specific school reading schemes and will do their best to match their available books to specific subject requests, based on stock in their libraries. This will be on a first come, first served basis. 


If you do not have access to online services, they can be contacted 0300 123 4049 and a member of our team will be able to help fill out the form. Details of library opening times and up to date information can be found on their website 

Library membership also enables access to their free e-library where children can read or listen to books from BorrowBox


We really hope that you will take the opportunity to use this great resource.  Happy Reading!
